The Tunnel / 地洞
  • Year2019
  • Duration30 min

“Yong-Hong, the main character in this film, usually assists film crews with location scouting and occasionally plays characters on film. While filming this documentary, Yong-Hong was also an extra in a film shot in an old military site, the tunnel. He once wrote a script about himself and his terrible family. His script is the origin of this film…

A poet once wrote that family was "the first roof, the first torture platform, the sweetest place, the most painful thorn." This short film perhaps is a description of this complex combination, about family, about people.” - Hsu Hui-ju
