The film marks Kunlin Wang's debut as a feature film director, after a Masters in Film Production at Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts.
Kunlin Wang has always been attracted to stories of deviance, subcultures, and marginalization. Obscure is an ancient and modern film that blends ancestral instincts with an experimental technique and narrative.
We are on a farm, immersed in the ritual and harsh life of a family: Henry, the father, Jamie, the son, and Lou, the daughter. The three of them live in complete isolation, dedicated solely to farm management and their own sustenance. The father is the master, managing the two children as he pleases. Brother and sister are similar, almost androgynous creatures. Through Jamie's gaze and the complicity between him and Lou, Kunlin Wang immerses us in the (male) competition, in a queer sexuality, and in the stages of awareness, emancipation, and an ending that links the relationship between victim and executioner.

Plot: Trapped in father's nightmare, a boy tries to repeal the psychological repression by competing for his sister's sexual attention.
