‘Stage’ is a short tragedy about an actress. Madeline has spent her whole life on stage and put all her passions into her acting. Now she is going to give her last performance after receiving notice that her talents are no longer required. Without the stage, what else does she have? Madeline has her answer.
The idea behind this short film is to question the meaning of a person’s existence in this world. The writer-director Lai Chung has taken an uncompromising approach to this theme. He believes that if we cannot do what we love, our lives our meaningless. For him, Madeline’s experience is like that of so many people in the world who never get a chance to achieve their dream.
