Wuhan Punk

Experimental Film United Kingdom 2020 OVeS
By: Chris Zhongtian Yuan

Around the beginning of quarantine last year, I started editing a video titled Wuhan Punk, which retells an obscure music history and the former member of Wuhan Punk group Si Dou Le who disappeared from my memory. A mystified industrial city was outlined in the video with mixes of CGI animation from Unreal Engine (a rendering software commonly used in CGI games) and drone footage, overlaid with stories of flooding, and punk bands and the city. The parallel between industrial cityscape and sonic landscape constitutes a memory palace for Wuhan.
