Tiger Portrait #9

Ten world premieres will be screened this year in the Tiger Competition, the main competition of IFFR, that celebrates the talent of young, promising filmmakers. The makers vie for the Tiger Award and the Special Jury Award. IFFR speaks them all, of course. Today, Zheng Lu Xinyuan talks about The Cloud in Her Room, her bittersweet, personal debut about Twenty-something Muzi who returns to her birthplace Hangzhou.

About The Cloud in Her Room
Chinese filmmaker Zheng Lu Xinyuan's debut is a melancholy, palpably personal film about twenty-something Muzi returning home for the New Year's celebration. Everything seems the same, but different. An expressionist search for love, (in)dependence and connection, filmed in atmospheric shades of black and white.
