Worn Away


In a world dominated by the Internet and a corporatocratic empire, an unemployed individual, forced to enroll in the Empire's Optimisation of Biological Function Assistance Program. Amid the dark age, he learns from others that rebuilding subjectivity is possible, even in seemingly impossible situations, offering hope in a superficially resplendent era.

'Is it possible to create a documentary film about a future world? This question has nothing to do with reality or fantasy, but rather about the fact that at this time, we live in societies of extreme economic inequality created by the Empire. If we do not envision possibilities for the future, then the future will be the same as now—or even become a Dark Ages of greater inequality.' - CHEN Chieh-jen

Director's Profile
CHEN Chieh-jen

Chen Chieh-jen makes his films mainly in collaboration with marginalized communities. To address the erasure of the people's history and contemporary reality by years of neoliberalism, he re-imagines, re-narrates, and re-links in his film projects with strategies he calls 'making reverberations,' 'starting a second wave movement,' and 'producing contemporary lo-deh sao.'
