STORIES ABOUT HIM
Directed by Yung Shiuan Yang
In this artfully pieced together short, Yung Shiuan Yang mixes a wide range of techniques from collage, glass painting, and animation to tell the whimsical story of her grandfather. Her relatives say that he was a gold miner, a trainee, a businessman, and a hero. The stories they tell her are almost too difficult to imagine. Are these tales all real? Who on earth is he?
Yung Shiuan Yang was born in Kaohsiung and obtained an MFA in Animation from the Tainan National University of the Arts in 2015. Her interests in local culture, history and memories serve as the inspiration for her animation.
