Tell Me What You Want
by Yu Cheng-Ta film (1h2min)
presented by Chi-Wen
Tell Me What You Want is a mockumentary in four chapters about desire, friendship, and negotiation between a foreign traveler and the local so-called ‘marketeers’ that he encounters on the street in Malate, Manila. Using a fictitious name, ‘David’, Yu Cheng-Ta travels to Malate, shifting his identity between tourist, friend and artist, allowing him to get involved in ambiguous narratives and relations. In Malate, ‘tell me what you want’ is a common greeting referring to the transactional structures characteristic to the red light districts. By incorporating transaction as a concept for the production of the film, Yu Cheng-Ta delves into a blurred field of tourism, sex industry and performance.
