Autobiography II: Struggle
(Wu Wenguang, 2018, 65 min, China, Color, Digital)
“From the moment when my mother disclosed a long kept secret, my birth was accompanied by many struggles for my mother. Those “struggles” include: during pregnancy, “should this child be kept,” to the painful struggles in the delivery process. Struggles have also accompanied since I was born, becoming part of my life.” (WW)

About The Memory Project
