Charon

Zhang Xinyue, Lu Rui

Experimental film    4 minutes 42 seconds

By shaping the image of the heroine, this short film shows the issue of female students' freedom of speech on sexual topics in society. When women openly talk about sex, they will always receive some strange eyes and teasing reactions. This short film is an exaggeration of this phenomenon. After the heroine falls in love, she feels the joy of sex, which for her is a way to liberate her nature. So she dared to share with her friends, but everyone was horrified, she chose between silence and persistence. By making this short film, I hope the girls can be more brave and free to do what they want to do when they talk about what they think is happy.
