She Said Why Me

1989, video, 7’31’’

A woman, blindfolded, travels from an old countryside temple to a bustling city. Although her surroundings have changed, a feeling of uneasiness lingers. With a distinctively female perspective, the artist/director assembles images of women walking both in the past and present, to express a sense of anxiety that was permeating Hong Kong at that particular time.
