Father's Tongue 2007 (05:33)

This series of videos are co-operated with people who don’t speak Mandarin, my native language. Several stories based on my personal encounters during the journey in foreign countries are whispered in Chinese in their ears and the person imitates the sound and speaks out without knowing its meaning. In the end, a Chinese speaker translates what could be understood in English.

In this video, I was talking about a homosexual encounter in Paris and the story copes with specific body gesture, which implies but not confirms the relationship between two males. Besides, the person's pronunciation was corrected until the limit of his ability. ©Chia-En Jao 2007
