|导演阐述

这是我第二部作品,在云南沧源佤族自治县拍摄,我在那边生活了一年,由于空气成分的缘故,那里的颜色十分清晰且绚丽多彩,就像影片画面里呈现的一样,但那里的人,迅速的变化着,也许经济与科技是使之变化的原因之一。这当然是好事,但有时也失去了原本他们的味道。我能体会到他们对佛教的虔诚,但话里话外又都是钱,我能看到科技带来的变化,但与此同时也让电玩占据了孩子们的青春。我能感受到他们希望通过发展旅游来带动经济,但旅游与传统文化之间的平衡,又不是那么容易把握。就像影片的结尾,拜佛的大门被锁了起来,只有孩子们才能钻进去。

|Director’s statement

This is my second film. The film was shot in Va Autonomous County of Cangyuan, Yunnan Province, where I lived for year. Because of the air composition, colors in that place are quite clear and gorgeous, just like it presents in the film. However, people is influenced by the development of the society such as economy and technology. It is good in a way, but people lost their local identity somehow. I realized conflicts between their loyalty for Buddha and the desire for money. I saw the advancement of technology and the loss of time among the youth. I felt it is hard to seek a balance between tradition and tourism though locals hope tourism would help local economy. The ending of the film presents that: the door to the Buddha is locked and only children can get into.
