「歌墟」是壮族地区的山歌集会,曾经广为盛行。它通常围绕宗祠或竜树进行,其间,男女相约而至,即兴作词,你来我往,对唱万物。
传递的山歌开启了一次迁徙。摄影机沿途抵达了不同的歌者与集会,流转于乡土与城镇,寻找着歌墟散逸的踪迹。 

“Hawfwen,” a traditional gathering that used to be popular, where the Zhuang people would sing folk songs. It often takes place around clan temples or under old trees. Singers are divided into male and female groups. They improvise their lyrics to sing in correspondence with one another.
Traveling along the songs in antiphonal style, the camera has found different singers and gatherings, lingering in rural areas and cities, trying to find the broken echoes of “hawfwen.”
