The Chrysalis

by CHOU Shang-ting

With a detached gaze, the film captures what it is really like to be at the construction site, depicting the sense of uncertainty and powerlessness that weighs on the construction workers.
In a closed and depressed environment as such, the variation of sound and space is the only way for people underground to feel the gradual lapse of time. The cold building resembles not only a spider web in appearance, but also a jail in essence.
