The Feeling Of Being Close To You
Documentary Short | US, 2021
Director: Ash Goh Hua
Role: Full Sound Post
The Feeling of Being Close to You 靠近你的感觉 documents an attempt at healing the trauma of touch between mother and child. Driven by a pure desire for intimacy, my mother and I talk openly for the first time about the intergenerational trauma and abuse within our lives. Using present day phone conversations juxtaposed with archival VHS footage, this act of filmmaking becomes a vessel to reconnect with past selves and re-write once cyclical destinies, thus generating new possibilities of living and relating.
