EXISTENCE
Tingting Zhang
In this installation work, I intend to discuss personal experiences of domestic violence. I am also pointing out the damages caused by the reinforcement of the one child policy in China.  

The strength of the film is its revelation of unspoken abuse that is normalized across Chinese society. The limitations of the film are these are some of my closest relatives. So, this process would be more difficult on a larger scale. The film is also limited to a single camera single point perspective. In that it feels quite raw and sometimes lacks the sophistication that Western audience require. I don't think the film would benefit from fast cutting and multiple cameras. For me, it is not technical virtuosity but the direct truth of people stories, simply conveyed in a coherent form that would emotionally move and inform audiences.
