(Tending) (to) (Ta)
DirectorApril Lin 林森
(Tending) (to) (Ta) is a narrative-led speculative fiction film which follows an exchange of internal letters between two protagonists who imagine one another across parallel dimensions. Each communicating to an envisioned other, who exists as a possibility beyond their self-perceived boundaries of reality, these two beings meet in a shared world of imagination. In the film, April Lin 林森 casts ‘ta’, the monosyllabic sound which in Mandarin Chinese encompasses all third person pronouns, as an infinite cosmic entity with a proper noun Ta, who exists across universes and is present in all beings and matter.
