‘jiéjiè’ is a buddhist word describing the protective ‘zone’ created through
a collective consciousness among a group of people. Yu Guo takes this
notion as a perspective through which to look at how we communicate
within heavily mediated urban environments. For Yu Guo in today’s urban
life, every single visual action of viewing functions like a screen
constantly producing new narratives to follow or not. Watching a subway
window is the same as watching one’s phone screen; both containing
a kind of mediated language embedded inside. “jiéjiè ” is the screen
where the two-way rendering of body and media communicate.
The film aims to discuss how “jiéjiè’ works in this new environment
and whether a new language is needed to describe this situation.
