K’s Room – The Creation and Destruction of the World

  • Taiwan
Audio Tracks 

‘K’s room’ is a mental space that serves as a metaphor for the complex relationship between men, boundaries, and the nation state during Taiwan’s martial law period. All the lines in the film were extracted from New English Grammar, one of Taiwan’s most popular English grammar books published in 1960, as a way of reconstructing the mental state of its author Mr. K who was sent to prison due to political reasons.
