In Afterimage for Tomorrow, director Singing CHEN collaborates with choreographer Shou-Yi CHOU to perform the ineffable in memories. This metafiction film set in a futuristic world where memories can be uploaded and perpetuated, leads to a discussion of what in life is worth storing.
We perceive the world through eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. This sensory data is stored as memory in words, pictures, sounds and moving images. With fractions of the transcribed memories, we are capable of returning to a specific point in time, which is an act of distortion and overlaying of time and space. However memories aren’t always reliable.
