You are probably no stranger to movies, but have you ever heard of a "Motionless Movie"?

Far from a simple slide show, the Motionless Movie mainly consists of photos and various images viewed with the aid of filming techniques. So, what kind of theater experience will this kind of movie bring us?

Let's find out together as we enjoy one such motionless picture at closer range.

This film is called "The First Glance." As director Lan Bo introduces, his production team creates the piece with the help of multiple technologies. Although the film consists of still pictures only, the movie vocabulary is far from monotonous.

Lan Bo, director, said, "We've employed the filming technologies for conventional movies and cartoon pictures. We tried to make the piece appealing to the eyes like a visual installation, not merely a power point show."

This film is called "The First Glance."

The film "First Glance" centers on the growing pains and emotional struggles of the younger generation in China. Lan says it took his production team two and a half years to finish and perfect the film. The photo materials for the piece were chosen from nearly 100-thousand pictures they've collected and taken in Chengdu of southwest China's Sichuan Province.

The film has been invited to participate in the Cambodia International Film Festival, which opens on Wednesday.
