The Free Man

2015香港独立电影节(Hong Kong Independent Film Festival 2015)
台湾独立短片选-2015香港独立电影节

Three young Taiwanese directors put together three short dramas, each of them is one of a kind. In Kaidi Zhan's The Pool Man, a fat guy with low self-esteem meets once-famous swimmer. A personal swimming class between two loners is arranged, one for desire, the other for the sake of survival. The depressing blue of the rippling pool reflects their very last resort to break from the status quo. Will there be a twist of fate?

In Quah Poon Lip's The Free Man, Kit who's just discharged from prison works in Tsai's shacky laundary store. As Kit bumps into the secret between Tsai and his niece, he's trying to stay out of it but to engage in an unintended choice.

The title of Wang Chia Chun's Ganju came from a legendary dark blue pearl from Tang Dynasty. The legend goes that by touching the Ganju, you can retrieve any forgotten memory. In the film, the grandpa who suffered from Alzheimer's keeps murmuring about the pineapple field that he sold years ago in exchange of better education for the son. The incident is an unspeakable regret between the grandpa and the son, while the grandson becomes a vessel containing both the memories and losts of two generations.
