Filmmaker Deng Wei’s grandfather Zuogui has been blind since the age of three, living most of his life as a fortune teller. Now approaching the final chapter of his life, Zuogui lives a life of bitter discontent toward his son (and Wei’s father) Donggu, whose actions from the past caused a rift between them. Donggu works as a property developer, but when a job-site accident forces him into financial hardship, it prompts a re-examination of his priorities and values - one that may lead the father and son to finally form a bond of respect, perhaps even love. Wei captures the fraught relationship between his father and grandfather as they negotiate past resentments and an uncertain future.
Deng Wei is a director and producer. He earned his B.A. and M.A. degrees in Film and Visual Arts at the Central Academy of Fine Arts. His short film works, South by South, Mountain Kora, Flags, and Waiting for the Wind: Series of Images were shown in the Today Art Museum, 21 Space Art Museum, Coast Gallery Art Museum, and Enjoy Art Museum.
