They do everything together: they read poetries, have breakfast, see friends, argue with each other, comfort each other, share their childhood and past memories. With imagination, they introspect in solitude and rest in intimacy. At the beginning of twenty years of the 21st century, the world seemed to be in a state of chaos and disorder, with individuals slipping into depression and confusion. The middle-aged intellectual couple engage in one 'long talk' and try their best to express with words, although they might step into a greater unknown. However, expression and communication, imagination and poetry, are already the basis for something.
Su Qiqi is a critic, film curator and professor at university.
She has published many film critic collections, organize and animates the film projections.
'Talks Overnight' is her director-screenwriter debut.
