– Was Being Moved? (2012); Digi; TRT: 11.00
Ye Mimi is a Taiwanese poet and filmmaker. A graduate of the MFA Creative Writing Department at Dong Hwa University and the MFA Film Department at School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she is the author of two volumes of poetry and has internationally exhibited several of her poetry films. Through collaging her words and images, she improvises a new landscape trying to erase the border between poetry and image making. Most recently, a bilingual chapbook of her poems was published by Anomalous Press under the title His Days Go by the Way Her Years.
It’s inspired by the quirky ways in which the unconscious mind composes.
This film is about the state of moving and being moved. When people build a boat to carry themselves; when people start to walk backwards; when gods lead people to step on the Earth… is it possible that everyone becomes someone else’s “far-afar” in the continuous movement?
