Fishlike

The topic of the short fiction film inspired by Brain in a vat, a theory showing that limited cognitive abilities often make it difficult to distinguish the difference between reality and fantasy. This state of being trapped in a vat, where it is difficult to distinguish between reality and fantasy, is similar to the dilemma in a marital relationship.
The story tells a man returns home to find his wife dead from suicide. Unable to come to terms with this sudden misfortune, he is lost in his own thoughts intertwined with fantasy and memory, trying to make sense of their marital problems and the reasons for his wife’s suicide.

Directed by Yiling Yao (UK)
