SYNOPSIS

 

In Genghis Khan's last days, an encounter with a Wizard sends him to the Moon. Just as the Mediaeval anti-hero thinks he's made his greatest conquest, he finds himself on a spiritual quest, realizing the absurd clash between one man's need and the silence of the Universe.

 

歷史上沒人知道成吉思汗的葬身之地,導演藉此靈感所創作的科幻寓言短片。

成吉思汗遲暮之年,與巫師的一場際遇,讓大汗上了月球。正當大汗認定他已征服了人生最偉大的領土時,

他陷入了天人交戰。慾壑難填宇宙的靜寂,驚覺一切竟是南柯一夢……

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABOUT THE PROJECT

 

Genghis Khan Conquers the Moon is a short science fiction fable  about an anti-hero on a spiritual quest, starring legendary Asian American actors Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa & James Hong.

 

Genghis Khan Conquers the Moon is Kerry Yang's MFA thesis film, produced at the USC School of Cinematic Arts in 2015, under the mentorship of USC faculty members Doe Mayer, Michael Fink and Bruce Block. The film is uniquely ambitious in scope, and could not have been made without the generous collaboration of award-winning Visual Effects Supervisor Gene Warren III, who assisted the crew in VFX photography and the construction of purpose-built scale-model miniatures. The film contains almost 100 visual effects shots and took over two years to complete. The film was the 2014 recipient of an Irving Lerner Endowment Fund and a FOX VFX Fellowship Endowment Fund. 

 

RUN TIME: 17 min 

GENRE: Sci-fi Fantasy
