I Am So Sorry (2021)

Documentary - 7 July 2021
Your rating:
Not rated yet!

In the context of contemporary high-advanced technology and totalitarianism, this film presents the predicament of global warming in terms of humanity’s choices about nuclear power. Anchored by a man whose quest humanizes global changes, this film traces the historical events and present situation of nuclear disaster across human society. Every nuclear site he revisits represents a specific temporality - Fukushima, Japan, as the ongoing present; Semipalatinsk, Kazakhstan, as the concealed past; Chernobyl, Ukraine, as the forever alienated present, and Onkalo, Finland, as the future of the future. The narrative created through deconstruction and reconstruction of histories provides a new space to reflect on nuclear issues. In this space, a panorama of global apocalyptic landscapes after the nuclear disaster as well as the daily lives of humans on these land is brought to life. The film, visually futuristic yet close to cyberpunk science fiction, seeks to create a human allegory in the present.

In a dim room filled with steam and mist, blurred figures of men are sipping the desire and loneliness from each other. You seem to have entered a forbidden zone and fallen into a state between dreaming and being awake, gazing at someone and also being gazed by them. The “prurience,” “erotism,” and “obscenity” in the steam room is part of the life experience that is unspeakable yet indispensable in gay community culture. Incorporating the imaginative frame of visual arts with VR, director Chou Tung-Yen recreates the real desire.
