Plastic Glory

Plastic Glory



Plastic can mean either the material of toys or other objects, or the meaning of the word "fake".

The main story of Plastic Glory is about "plastic" soldiers who die for a "glory" that is "fake". It is fake because it promises that soldiers die only when necessary, for the glory of their country. But what happens is that soldiers always die, unfortunately only for the glory of those who control them and, in the most cases, care more about getting promoted than choosing to keep their troops alive. The film is about plastic toy soldiers in battle, firing at each other, bombing each other in a way that mimics real battles and wars, only without blood, smoke or fire. Such an approach makes more room for the imagination of the audience where they can fill in what they do not see with what they know and perceive. It also makes the film appropriate for kids to watch, while safely passing the idea to them that war is merely a mean killing machine. And the most unfortunate victims of the violence that is delivered through the toy soldiers are the kids. - Ihab Mardini Thesis Abstract

Terra Cotta Warrior

Terra Cotta Warrior



           39th STUDENT ACADEMY AWARD                  ALTERNATIVE FILM FINALIST                                  





After nearly two centuries of revolution, China faces the dilemma of a spiritual wasteland without faith and without a cultural base to let our souls settle down. The social ills, which stem from the loss of traditional culture, abound in China. Terra-Cotta Warrior was designed as a kind of succinct review of Chinese modern cultural history. The warrior’s encounters and tribulations dramatically allude to what China has experienced in the past almost 200 years. The film explores the crucial causes of Chinese hardships by presenting the cultural-historical context through fantastic means. The technique utilized consists of interplay between pixilationation and live action. Pixilation can give life to fantastic details in a very stylistic manner, and the live action portions are necessary for realistic visual stimulation. The coordination of genre, theme and technique offers viewers a unique entertaining experience and also stimulates deep thought and concern.  - Bin Li Thesis
