Summary Of The Story::
Grandpa passed away. Yezi returns home and grandma gradually has lost her memory. The days seem no different from before. But until the evening, the deep sadness and memories of the past solidify into a mountain, forest, beast, and grandpa, accompanying Yezi and her grandmother around.
Director Niu Xiaoyu
Xiaoyu Niu, female, born in Hefei, Anhui, major in Experimental Film at Beijing Film Academy. A young poet, an opportunistic cartoon author and an air bassist of a virtual band.
This is a story about memory. Memories gather together to form a pond of gloom, attracting haunting souls and sorrowful human and ghost, birds and animals, living and dead people sharing this pool of static water and inactive time. Death is no longer an "end", but a lasting state. The ultimate problem on "eternity" is solved, the gap between existence and nothingness removed, and all creatures sink into a drowsy summer heat.
Producer Niu Xiaoyu
Female, born in Hefei, Anhui. Graduated from BFA Animation Academy, majoring in Comic and Experimental Image. She is the producer, screenwriter and director of Summer Fever, a short film which was shortlisted in the 10th China Independent Film Festival. Her second short film Summer Fever II was nominated Best Short Film for the 12th FIRST International Film Festival.
The works about Yuhua Pond began in 2013, from the comic Yuhua Pond , the short film Summer Fever, to the 2017 short film Summer Fever II . Virgin Blues continues the previous characters and environmental background, trying to evoke a general emotional resonance with a private memory. The director will go through a journey of looking for memories and accepting the lost with the protagonist Yezi. Different from the conventional realist family theme film, this film creates an ambiguous, chaotic family space in a multi-temporal juxtaposition, and quietly breaks the daily life with tiny misplacements.
