Le Grand Phuket
Feature film / approx. 90 min / in post production
After the piece of land on which Li Xing lives with his mother and stepfather is confiscated, the life of the unruly fourteen-year-old changes drastically. His family and school situation, as well as his conflictual relationship with a classmate, cause him trouble.
Together with his only friend Song, he discovers a long-abandoned tunnel made of magnetic stone in the ruins of the current "Greater Phuket" development area, which is said to carry sounds and images from times past.
A place that embeds the unreal so naturally into Li's life that his fragile internal world connects with it.
