DESCRIPTION

Hou Hanru hosts a screening of Sun Xun’s 21ke (21 grams), an epic animated film based on research conducted by Dr. Duncan MacDougall (1907), an American physician who claimed to have measured the weight of the human soul as 21 grams. Sun Xun depicts a surreal journey through a dystopian world full of cryptic symbols. Drawn with crayon, frame by frame, 21 Ke drifts through mysterious cities of plague and soot.
