Review

The director is currently producing a sequence of ten films inspired by the Ten Oxherding Pictures, which expresses the stages of meditation through ten pictures. The first in series was Ten Oxherding Pictures #1- Going out in Search of the Ox(2004) which enabled the viewers to experience the time of life, aging, illness and death through farming and the mother´s death. It was followed by Ten Oxherding Pictures #2 - Seeing the Footprints(2005), that showed a facet of life through waiting; Ten Oxherding Pictures #3 - Catching Sight of the Ox - at Tibet(2006) described in silence the pilgrimage to Tibet and the nature and humans seen along the way. The fourth in the series is ready for showing this year. The director has cultivated an equal relationship between film making and living, presenting serene and profound cinema scape based on simple motifs. This time, he presents a question about life through the voyages of two Chinese quinces. The two fruits, born and raised upon the same tree, head in different directions and have contrasting fates. Their itinerary is described through symbolic language and still-life images, the director asks what "catching the ox" means. Between each speech and image, the voyage appears to the viewers in the form of film, opening a spacious place for meditation. The dark yellow Chinese quinces in a snow-white field and the red cloth on a pole is lovely to the eye.
