Utilising time-based spatial collages combined with documentary footage, this short film looks into the everyday practice of dissolved families in Shigushan village, Wuhan, China, with a focus on the crucial role of spatial thresholds in conditioning an intergenerational, interdependent way of living that is somewhere between the family and the collective.  The short film is part of an ongoing transdisciplinary project, RIPPLE RIPPLE RIPPLING, exploring the intersection of architecture, anthropology, performance, and filmmaking.
