There are a multitude of stories about mothers giving life to their children, but this is a story about a son giving it back. This is a documentary about when a mom is diagnosed as autoimmune hepatitis, her son volunteers to have the liver transplant surgery but the doctor declines the son’s repetition because the son is not an adult yet…

生命是一趟通往一个叫死亡的终点的列车,沿途总会有人先下车,我们在这趟列车上一次一次学会与死亡和解。《生命续章》是导演在访问南加州大学医学院的器官移植项目时发现的故事。一位身患肝疾的母亲,在经历五年的与疾病和抑郁症的抗争后,最后发现唯一的生机是接受他人的肝脏移植。美国是一个器官短缺的国家,每两个病人就有一个人因为器官短缺而无法进行手术,等待死亡。这位母亲的17岁的儿子在知道了母亲的病情后立刻要求将自己部分肝脏移植给自己的母亲让母亲得以继续生命,然而根据医院的规定,未成年人不应进行该手术。每一天活在希望与绝望中的母子两人,书写了一封情感真挚的信,寄给了医院,以博取生命延续的机会……

Aa a filmmaker, Sofia believes it’s part of her job to explore social issue, and let it get publicity. National short of organ is a crisis in USA, and each 1 of 2 patients will die because of organ shortage. Resuming Life is a documentary short focus on the topic of organ transplant surgery and the organ shortage crisis.

《生命续章》是一部纪录片作品,也是导演发现的一个关于医学和生命的社会性议题。导演认为,作为一个艺术工作者,发现社会问题并且把这些问题带进公众视野是一个艺术工作者、影视创造者的责任。记录真实的人事物也是导演创作的初衷。
