Loop Loop Loop

Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 6:0 | Chine, USA | 2021

Loop Loop Loop attempts to explore film as a matter and its value from changing perspectives. Using a combination of 16mm, Super 8mm, handmade film strips, and found footages as materials, this film intends to represent the adventure of two nonhuman characters on a train ("chicken features garlic skin" is a Chinese idiom referring to trivial matters) , where they are having a conversation around "film stock".
