In The End, I Understood (於是後來我懂了)

In the End, I Understood (2013) by Min Liu is a 2D hand-drawn rotoscoped animation, which poetically conveys the filmmaker’s emotional response to the loss of her friend to cancer. Composed from live footage, which is overlaid with frame-by-frame drawings to create an ink-like visual effect, the film seeks to share with a larger audience the complex range of sentiments that we all feel when confronted with death -- surprise, sadness and a profound re-evaluation of life itself.
