Check out “LiBai’s Premonition” by Rodrigo Saavedra, featured in the Shots article below.
This new short film from director Rodrigo Saavedra is inspired by 8th century Chinese poet, Li Bai.
Saavedra thought that the poem, Drinking Alone in the Moonlight, though more than 1,000 years old, had perfectly portrayed the emotions of people in lockdown during 2020. The poem is an ode to drinking and dancing with the moon and one’s own shadow and Saavedra felt a kinship with the piece having, like many during lockdown, also found a new appreciation for drinking, decided to make a short film about it.
