THE CENTURY EGG (TELEMOVIE, 2019)
The Century Egg is a magic realism two-part drama told with the logic of a fable, exploring how the choices of its characters can transform their existence. We follow a young girl who befriends a town outcast, and an ageing photo developer confronted with his past.
A strange noodle house with its all-knowing chef, appears when needed, providing clarity and transcendence with each meal.
The show provides a social commentary but will do so by finding the political in the personal, focusing its attention on the complexities of human relationships.
