The Floating Ball


Liuqiu, a tiny island on the outskirt of the Taiwan Strait, which means ‘floating ball’. Surrounded by more floating balls—’hotels-on-the-sea’ where Chinese fishermen stay. The film depict fate, humanity and destiny of these floating balls.  

'Originally a joyful overseas holiday, but once the filming began, everyone except the cinematographer felt ill. Spending eight to nine hours on a dirty, oily boat, unable to use the restroom or eat, only continuously smoking and bonding with them. Then, those lacking sleep started vomiting first. Some places seem nearby, just a short ride by boat, but can people really settle there? This is where I began contemplating the fate of the outlying islands.' - LEE Chih-chiang
