As I Imagine My Body Moving

Hong Kong / 2022 / 30 mins / Cantonese / Chinese & English subtitles / World Premiere

A former dancer encountering a sudden health issue, unveiled a deeper scar that concealed inside her for over 20 years. The film explores the notion of kinaesthetic separation between the body and its stream of consciousness, sometimes dislocation, or disconnection. Her immobilized body bearing illnesses somehow wandering in distorted time and space. The depersonalisation is perhaps a detachment one could have learned about our body and its autonomy.

Elysa Wendi is an artist / filmmaker based in Hong Kong. Since 2008, she began experimenting on choreographic ideas with the medium of film, performances and curatorial projects. Preoccupied with the abstraction of memory from place, time and biographical traces, Wendi explores these themes in her live and filmic works. Her short film 1958 Delivery won the Best Experimental Film award at the 2018 South Taiwan Film Festival, and her film Forgive or Not to Forgive won Best Documentary at Hong Kong ArtHouse Film Festival 2020.
