Journey to the west
Critic : MARIA SIEIRA
“Journey To the West” was a classic Chinese folktale that has long been told through out Asian countries; the story is about the journey of an assigned monk traveling from China to India to obtain Buddhist sacred texts and return with knowledge of Buddhism to be beneficial to Chinese Buddhism believers.
For this short film, I would like to make my own version of “Journey to the West”. It could be seen as another version of the folktale but will be told in new manner. Rather than pursuing ultimate happiness, people today are struggling in finding who they are and what their purpose in lives are, so that they can and peace in mind.
The main character is a female young-adult with the age of 27. Her mind was broken into pieces from encountering difficulties in reality. She started to forget her purpose of the journey and turned herself into monsters once she hated.
