    Driving late at night, a young woman mistakenly hits a dog with her car after he steps out into the road. Worried for the dog’s life, she puts him in her backseat and begins driving him to the vet. However, she soon notices that a human - arm has grown in place of his dog-arm. Shocked, she accidentally swerves into oncoming traffic and is unable to compensate before finding herself in the wrong end of a traffic tunnel. While she does everything to avoid a collision, the dog uses his new appendage to open the window. The woman closes it but the dog’s other dog-arm is caught in it and is sliced off. He grows yet another human-arm as the car makes it safely out of the tunnel. Just as the car nears the vet, the dog lunges at the girl. She holds him back but his jaw unhinges and a human-head begins sliding out of his mouth. The dog pulls the emergency brake and the car skids to a stop. The girl now sees that the dog has completed his transformation–and he now looks just like her. She then sees that her own hand has been replaced with a dog’s paw and she passes out from shock. When she awakens, she finds herself inside the body of the dog, which is inside a cage. Meanwhile, the dog (now inside the body of the girl) drives away from the vet.

  13. Crocodile Pond 13:36

    Subtitles language: English

    The postgraduate student Wang accidentally fell into the crocodile pond, and several citizens disappeared by the pond at the same time. The event continued to make news, and had attracted great attentions from social media. As the online discussion raged on, the truth became more and more intricate. In the end, Wang gave up climbing ashore, turning himself into a crocodile. The film is played on portrait mobile devices, and virtualizes a drowning accident. By imitating the fragmentary and random ways of seeing in people’s daily life with mobile phones, it presents a chaotic Rashomon effect in a pseudo-environment. The animated, fictional and mockumentary-like way of performance gives a self-reference to current we-media short videos, that the truth is twisted through communication, and that everything is true, or nothing is true. The tongue breaks bone, though itself has none. Wang was never hurt by the crocodile, but by the words of people onshore, and eventually became a crocodile that people avoid like the plague. Yet, who is the real cannibal crocodile?
