Aphrodite 女神

Short/Fiction/28mins/Colour/16mm

Kalisme’s graduation film.

This is a simple story that every day and every moment, with the blooming and fading. Upon hearing the tragic news of her parents’ death between winter and spring, Hai-Meng came back home from the school in the city to attend the funeral. The only thing her orchid loving parent had left her is an Taiwan origin breed orchid P.aphrodite named “Goddess No. 7” and her father’s research assisstant, Hsiao-Kuang.

They had only meet a few times during summer and winter term breaks and now have to live together until the funeral ends and Goddess No.7 blooms. As her parent had left the message “Let our goddess come alive.” Silently, time ticked away in their wait. Every day and every moment, with the blooming and fading, sadness has tiptoed away. There’s a little cozy universe blooming in their heart and welcome the new blooming period of life to come.2006 Taiwan Woman Makes Wave Film Festival – Best Short Drama
