Short Film: ANPU – ZOEA, 5min., Taiwan, 5min., Music Video

D3200d5aab posterMitten crabs have long been viewed as an environmental index for assessing the ecological state of rivers and streams in Taiwan.

The species has a unique spawning migration pattern, the species has seen a gradual decline in population over the past few decades,
Mainly attributed to overharvesting and pollution. as a result, their existence has also faded away in the popular consciousness. The narrative for the video comes from the director’s childhood memories. it starts in the streets under an overpass, where mitten crabs are being sold by a vendor with red lanterns lining his stand. two mitten crabs suddenly jump out of captivity and escape into the nearby sewers. as the crabs make their way into the city’s dark underbelly of water ways, they embark upon a voyage of spawning migration. they cross a terrain of cracked soil before finally reach the deep and enchanting ocean. the video combines both camera shot footage and animation, giving the audience a glimpse of the magnificence of the locales that are often overlooked by humans, through the perspective of the video’s eight-legged protagonists. throughout the video, the plot and details weave a narrative that illustrates the infinite metaphors and imagination projected onto life itself.
