Coby and Stephen Are in Love
2018-2019
(In post production)

Directed by: Carlo Nasisse and Yuanyuan Yang

“Coby and Stephen are in Love” is a love story between Coby, a 92 year old retired nightclub dancer and icon from San Francisco Chinatown’s golden age and Stephen, a man 20 years her junior who has aspired to be an experimental filmmaker since the 1960s anti-war movement. They fell in love at a seniors dance, and like two opposite ends of a magnet, they have been held together by an invisible force. In spite of a fundamental personality clash, they have created a glamorous world together through matching handmade outfits, dancing, and collage.

相爱的柯比与史蒂芬
2018-2019
(正在后期阶段)

导演:卡罗·那瑟斯,杨圆圆

92岁的柯比经历了旧金山华埠夜总会年代,是一名退役的舞者,74岁的史蒂芬经历了美国60年代反战运动,是一个从未实现电影梦的导演。两人晚年在舞池相爱,然而,除了对跳舞的热情,两人几乎没有其他共同点,恰如磁铁相斥的两端,却被一股无形的力量紧密关联。这个悖论也是影片的核心,爱情使一切不合逻辑都变得可能。柯比是史蒂芬的造型师,她更新了史蒂芬的衣橱,但凡一同外出,他们从头到脚都是柯比制作的情侣装;史蒂芬则是柯比的档案管理员,她毕生积攒的舞者职业照不仅令他着迷,甚至重燃了他的创作动力。史蒂芬不仅用摄像机记录二人的生活,同时也用柯比的照片做拼贴。他最喜欢把柯比放在内华达山脉的至高点,以此将生命中的两个挚爱结合——唯有在拼贴的虚构世界中,柯比才可以与他相伴登上山顶。二人以独特的方式维系感情,通过创造来表达对彼此的情感:他们裁剪、缝补与拼贴布料与图像,然后将自己的创作展示给世界。在影片中,柯比的裁剪、史蒂芬的拼贴与电影的视觉语言形成独特共振,这份呼应关系在影片剪辑中被直接体现。
