Chinese artist Lei Lei explores the melancholic side of life in his visually vibrant latest work entitled Missing One Player. Shown via Nowness, the lack of storyline in the short film helps to emphasis to the bigger picture which is the general apathy that exists between humans. The title points reference at the game of mahjong, in which commonly four players participate. Three players roam the streets in search of one more, yet finds it difficult task.
In response to his film, Lei Lei told Nowness:
“The lack of sympathy among people has made me feel very strange and sad.”
