导演阐述 Director’s statement
Red, white and blue stand for freedom, equality and fraternity in western world as is well known. But in China, these colors are much humbler. As I know they are very common in the building site. It is a kind of cheap plastic fabric with colorful stripe, which is used everywhere in the building site. Sometimes as tents which shield people from bad circumstance, sometimes as curtains which separate living spaces, sometimes as bags which contain luggage, it wholly expresses the rough feeling which belongs to labour. But I have no idea about the spirit which these colors represent. I just passed by occasionally, and recorded the working and living scenes of the workers who own these colors with three improvised long takes. I think these scenes are closer to the essence of documentary than my feature films.
