Encore Shorts: X.Y.

Director's Statement

Twin dancers, Zhu Xing and Zhu Yue, compete with each other while maintaining distinctive personalities. This film captures the dancers’ movements and meditation as their mental and physical spaces overlap.

They share the same life experience while keep distinctive though self-conscious personalities. Just like the X-axis and Y-axis of a plane, they start off from the same point, advance towards different directions of life, but still remain inextricably connected.
