our project

We are hoping to raise £3,000 to film our graduation film, KAMI RIVER, which will be a great help to our filming. KAMI RIVER is a love story, and director Shuaishuai tells the story slowly by telling the connection between two strangers, and the emotions are also evolving along with the story.

About the Director

Shuaishuai is currently a postgraduate student in film at Kingston School of Art in the UK. 

LOgiline

Sun, a 20-year-old Chinese girl, found letters written by her mother's same-sex lover, Maggie Randall, to her mother for 20 years while sorting out her mother's belongings, so she took her mother's ashes to a foreign country to find the love story between Maggie and her mother on the Kami River.

Story inspiration

  • The sexual repression of Chinese people has created tens of millions of personal and even family tragedies. Sexual minorities under the discipline of patriarchal society are forced by pressure sooner or later, or have expectations for "normal life" and an inexplicable sense of belonging, or are forced to, Sooner or later, enter a heterosexual marriage. I hope to express all kinds of beautiful qualities of women, such as tolerance, loyalty, bravery, through a journey to find the true self of a mother.    
  • Inspired by the tragic illusion of my future, I am Chloe, everyone is Chloe, and I hope there will be fewer and fewer Chloes. In the film, Chloe's photo is attached to the wooden urn, soaked in the water of the Kami River and slowly drifting into the distance. The water is constantly flowing, the sunshine is dazzling, and I hope the lesbian tragedy will not end.
