Based on a pornographic book from the 1980s, Taiwanese artist Su Hui-yu’s immersive two-channel video brings frozen tableaux of a forest orgy to life. Actor Chin Shih-Chieh (Edward Yang’s The Terrorizers) reads out a titillating story from the pages of the book, after which he recalls his childhood memories of letting his erotic imagination run wild. Accompanied by a crackling drone soundtrack, the camera tracks naked bodies and finds the surrounding river turned vibrant pink and yellow.All Short films at IFFR 2017
