A Lucid Dream
Dir. Li Yue
Logline: Memory eats into his dream. With the disappearance of that batch of wood which comes from the Southwest border, Li Guang, who is at the age of knowing destiny, realizes that this bizarre and motley reality is only built of the extension of memories. As for the kind of freedom he had been pursuing in that crazy age may never exist. After all, all he got in the end was only a siege of mind and body.
