Abstract

Sea Lake is dying — a tiny drought-stricken town in the heart of the Mallee. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a busload of Chinese tourists turn up to take photos on the nearby salt lake. When the sun goes down, when the light’s just right, the lake turns to mirrorwater and it’s like you’re walking on sky. Not far behind these unlikely visitors comes Kai, fleeing Melbourne, broken and adrift. As Kai begins to understand this strange new place, its cultures and stories start refracting through one another. With tenderness and humour, Mirror’s Edge explores the complexities of cross-cultural encounters.

Sea Lake,这个Mallee小镇的心腹之地,正在饱受干旱之苦,濒临死亡。某日,一大群远自中国的旅客们结伴而来,在盐湖附近四处拍照。日落时分,光线的映衬让平静的湖面宛若一面天空之镜,人们也如同行走在云端之上。在他们之后不久,Kai,一个迷失于墨尔本的失意者(年轻人),漂泊至此,慢慢地开始了解这个陌生的地方。在这里,不同的文化和故事即将邂逅。伴随着温情与幽默,Mirror’s Edge 将带你探索不同文化间的碰撞所迸发出的种种可能性。
