Who Is Fishing®?


Mentioning Diao-yu-tai evokes an immediate patriotic response in Taiwan due to the territorial dispute between China and Japan, sparked by a 1968 oil field survey in the East China Sea.  

'I wouldn't say I'm shooting the Diao-yu-tai; it's more like the Diao-yu-tai is capturing me, or perhaps it is reflecting me. I never thought the Diao-yu-tai was important to me, and even now, after researching so much about the island, the more I understand it, the less I want to engage with it. I just wish it could peacefully lie there.' - Singing CHEN

Director's Profile
Singing CHEN

Singing Chen is a filmmaker who focuses her creation on the human condition and beliefs, exploring the essence of life. Her approach to magical realism highlights the absurdity in reality and points out the structural problem in society. She has accumulated many poetic images through nuanced observations during her long-term documentation of Taiwanese artists in different fields such as theatre, dance, and sound art. In 2022, her VR film The Man Who Couldn't Leave won the Best Experience Award in the 79th Venice Immersive Competition, and she served as the jury president for the immersive competition at the 80th Venice Film Festival. Other renowned works include the VR film Afterimage for Tomorrow, the documentary The Walker, feature films God Man Dog and Bundled, and the series Heaven on the 4th Floor, many of which were nominated or won at the Berlin Film Festival, Busan Film Festival, Friborg Film Festival, TIDF, and many more.
