Towards a fiction-documentary AAA Cargo: Shuihuo

A village re-emerges after a reservoir has been drained.
Strange weather hits with the arrival of Ewiniar.
Along the banks of the Pearl River Delta,
a fossilized sim card is found embedded in a rock.




In collaboration
with Ming Lin. 


 

This project unfolds as the second part of the film trilogy AAA Cargo. Continuing from the themes of the more-than human choreographies forming along the New Silk Road, this episode looks to speculative and historical narratives surrounding 水货 (shui huo), or ‘water goods’, as objects with many lives—negotiating both identity and territorial boundaries—resulting in a script informed by everyday science fiction scenarios.
