Your Face

Synopsis

As I searched the streets of Taipei for faces to film, some verses began to appear in my mind. I wrote them down: There is some light, there is a story. Your face tells of the passage of time and places you have journeyed. In your eyes, there is a tinge of confusion and sadness. There is some light, there is a story. Your face tells of love and the places it hides in. In your eyes, there is a sparkle and some darkness. This is the meaning of the film.
