Getting Ready for the Festival

Audio Tracks

Fruits on sale – Sharpening knives – Getting groomed by a barber – A bit of sweat on the nape – Fans and flies. In these freckled, disjointed montages of everyday life, we see a faint hint of an upcoming festival as the theatre troupe sound its drums; the children either sit and gaze, or clamber to see the lead actress. After LONG Sih-liang passed away in 2012, this 8mm roll of film was discovered among his personal effects, and is now shown for its first time after 51 years.
