Short ‘A Matter of Time’ receives slew of new nominations and wins Anatolian Award

LOS ANGELES, Calif./ACCESSWIRE/October 24, 2022/ After winning the Remi Awards and earning a spot in the LA Shorts Film Festival and Hollyshorts Film Festival shortlist, A Matter of Time, a short film directed and produced by Lizzy Yang Liu received another round of nominations in 2022.


A Matter of Time recently won the 2022 Anatolian Film Award, featured honoree status at the monthly London International Film Festival, as well as a Silicon Beach Film Festival® and Golden Short Film Festival nomination.

With A Matter of Time, Liu sought to shed light on underrepresented stories in Chinese society and intergenerational conflict. A Matter of Time is a drama centered on a mother-daughter relationship against the backdrop of intergenerational tension, economic stress and gentrification.

Following a large-scale demolition and construction in a small town in China, the film centers on a grandmother, Ying, a 70-year-old resident with an empty nest. During the story, Ying is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and faces pressure to move to a local public nursing home, persuaded by her daughter Xiao Yu, who works as a construction worker in a large town.

The film applies a realistic style with fixed camera movements and an objective audio environment to portray the citizens at the bottom of society in China. The project focuses on observing and reflecting on the struggles and conflicts of ordinary people in everyday life. Additionally, A Matter of Time intends to connect the rapid developments of cities in China and changes in Ying’s inner state to establish a sense of helplessness and loneliness.

The film received consistent praise for the stellar performances from the main cast, as well as the stellar direction and production standards set by director Lizzy Yang Liu. “As an independent Asian filmmaker in the industry, I spare no effort to make my voice heard by the public through my film,” she told TheNerdDaily.
