“9” is a multiple narrative short film that attempts to create a space for viewers to revolve around the subjective perception of time and parting. Four independent storylines intersect in a way that knits 12 characters’ vignettes together. The film unfolds in a network structure; plots and characters integrate to form a cinematic landscape to present the ambiguity of life, the value of the single moment, and the melancholy truth that every meeting leads to a parting.

Directed by Danyu Wang (USA)
