They Said They Would Come Anyway is that Yang Fudong specially made for ShanghART to celebrate its 20th anniversary. It was shot during the summer 2014 on the island of Sandhornøy in Norway when Yang directed The Light That I feel. The lines in the film are drawn from Swedish director Ingmar Bergman’s Persona. Yang seeks to show how the wind and trees can express a narrative. As in many of his films landscapes play a paramount role equivalent to that of the protagonists.

They said they would come anyway. October, 2016

1——It doesn't matter. Tell me later today or tomorrow. You’d better leave something to keep yourself tormented, as everything else has been taken away now.

2——You know, it will have to hurt. Otherwise, it's only going to get worse.

3——You're laughing, are you? It's not that simple for me. Not so funny, either. But you always have your laughter.

4——We lay there completely naked and sunbathed dozing off and on, putting sunscreen on.

5——Every tone of voice a lie, every gesture a falsehood, every smile a grimace.

6——You’d better leave something to keep yourself tormented, as everything else has been taken away now.

7——They said they would come anyway.
