In a world dominated by men's shoes, women's high heels are not permitted to work. Newborn women's shoes are transformed into males in order to work in a factory.
After a few noticed short films (Metamorphosis, A Simple Breakfast, Forest dreaming), strongly marked by derision and absurdity, it took young Zhou Shengwei six years to complete She, using over 58 000 photos and 250 characters, totally independently and with a small crew. A brilliant and curious movie, confirming a true author's talent, marked by a both chilling and tender poetry, worthy of Jan Svankmajer or Terry Gilliam.
