Synopsis

A tragic piece of pottery that sheds tears every day. A man who devoted all his life to make that piece of pottery. Over 60 years, he has come close to seeing and grasping this bowl of his desire yet the end is nowhere in sight. Every time he nears completion, he ends up surrendering to the fire. Time is running out. Would he be able to bake the bowl he want? Would the bowl be able to contain him? Fire lights up his last kiln. This is a story about a bowl a man and his journey through fire.

    Long ago, I crossed over the horizon of an island. After escaping from the island and relocating to Beijing, I made documentaries Breathing Underwater and See-Saw, while missing being inside of the island. Currently, I am working on Breathing of Fire, The. I make films like a farmer. And I think making a documentary is more about the ‘discovery’ then the ‘creation.’ I hope to find ordinary things than something special, and the real face crouching under the surface. I make films to see them.
