From the Director
There is nothing high-sounding about why I made Snuggle. It was just my personal experiences with death as I grew up, which triggered me to imagine what it would be like to look at life at this age.
The consequence was spending 2 years with the families in elderly homes, hospitals, and a funeral hall, capturing many unexpected life events.
Does longevity guarantee happiness? Would it be unfilial if you wish for the death for your parents? Is it better to let go or to hold on?
Snuggle explores the very different ideas between two generations, and confronts matters of life and death.
A son wishes the death for his father because he cannot stand watching him suffer from illness and loneliness; a daughter is torn between the duty of taking care of old parents and living her own life; an estranged son unexpectedly resumes his relationship with his mother because of her terminal illness.
With all those linkages we have built in life, what happens when it comes to death?
