A film by Wu-Ching Chang
“As a child, I tore apart inconsiderately a ball mother made for me. This memory, like a deep needle, lies heavily in my heart.” The creator examines her own childhood experience.
Via rumination and transformation, she expresses what she feels in animation. After challenging the transference and deconstruction of power, motherhood has always been like a quiet, flowing, stretched stream, injecting life and affection from unseen end.
Directed, written, and animated by Wu-Ching Chang (Aco Chang)
Sound Design: Lyu-Chen Shin
Made at Taipei National University of the Arts, Taiwan
