A Holy Family


After twenty years of absence, director Elvis Lu returns home to confront the true reason for his departure: his unwavering belief in the psychic powers of his elder brother, A-zhi. Documenting each day, he realises that the actual source of familial strife may be his departure.

'My mother asked me to go back home, and I understood that she was getting ready to die. Suddenly, I felt that I wasn't ready to lose her, and I realised that I didn't have much time left to face the family problems that had haunted me for so long. I decided to return home and film our daily life, creating a family video that we had never had. This process has somehow eased the feelings of anger and emptiness that lingered within me for so long. Coming back to my family was complicated, but it also somehow led me to come back to myself.' - Elvis LU
