An ensemble of young artists from UCLA, USC and CalArts revive the old tales in a Chinese fantasy short stories collection (《聊斋志异》) with their modern bodies. Just like the author of the book in 1730, this tribe of artists is trapped in a chain of exams which leaves no space for free expression. Thus, creating art becomes a form of rebellion. They construct the house of tales, inviting audiences to come into the magical space between fantasy and reality, homeland and strange land.

Paris Syndrome

A 3934 m 928579

A divorced man finds the only way over heartache is to blame the romance-mongers in Paris and sets off on an journey of self-rediscovery… sort of. He kinda just wants to find the lock he and his ex-wife put on that bridge in Paris and cut it off.
