What this is about

A love story: between the strait  is an artist video made from archival materials and interview footage showing a real love story narrated by the artist.

The video looks into how an elderly woman’s relationship with a military officer during the Chinese Civil War ended up as a construction of history in China over a period of four decades.

Her story is intertwined with the artist’s own family experience that has a very different outcome.
