Oscar in China - A film by Cym
OSCAR IN CHINA
A FILM BY CYM

It is easy to document a far away country as ‘strange’ and ‘exotic’. Cym manages brilliantly to avoid this. Although sometimes her shadow and voice are present in the film, the viewer is most of all taken on the journey by Oscar as an explorer in a far away country. Without falling into the genre of travel video or family video, Cym shows a boy who is exploring an exotic world. Until at the end of the film the roles are turned around. It is the boy himself who turns out to be the exotic element in the usual daily life in China.
