Vhils – Realm (Shanghai, 2019)

Director’s Stament:

This short film focuses on the subject of human existence down to its core. It doesn’t attempt to answer universal doubts about the meaning of life but rather acknowledges the inherent uncertainty of human perceptions of the world. The fact that we all have, either we want it or not, a unique and different point of view of the world. We always see the world through our own eyes and therefore the only person we can truely connect to is ourselves. Inevitably, perhaps we have been alone all along. Though, after realising this, maybe this idea is also what brings us together. This realisation that every life in the planet is running its course, with its ideas, its dreams, but we’re all walking together, even if apart.

This text was translated and read in Shanghainese, a dialect spoken in the region of Shanghai (China). And therefore, we are providing the translated text to Mandarin right here:

有时,我记得。
我记得那些我听过的故事。
他们说假以時日,我会知道自己在这世上的位置。
我的目的,我的目标。
我會知道要做些什么,追求什么。 
但我渐渐意识到,没有人確實知道自己在做什麼。
我的父母不知道…你的父母不知道…父母的父母不知道。
他们的目的,没有人真正能得到他们所渴望的答案。
或者至少没有人确定过。
或许我们一直在迷失中。
活著就如發夢?
獨自一人?
還有谁现在能够听到我的声音,如果这把声音只在我的脑海里回荡?
這裡有现在?过去?还是只有未来?
昨日已逝,此刻已经结束,真正唯一的路是往前/明天。
最终,不正是這份孤獨将我们綁在一起吗? 
這種覺悟… 当你看着他人的眼睛時,你会知道他们与你不在同一条船上。
但也许,他们刚好泛舟在旁?
