In When?, Chinese Australian musician, composer and performer Mindy Meng Wang uses ancient Chinese harp (guzheng), cello with electronic effects, synthesisers and film footage collected by Chinese and Australian filmmakers to create an emotional and immersive audio-visual meditation on family, memories and life during global lockdown.

With poignant music and film, Mindy shares personal and undisclosed stories between her hometown in Lanzhou, Wuhan in China and Melbourne Australia where she now calls home and humanises the profound worldwide experience of the global pandemic.

When? takes you on an emotional journey and goes deeply into our shared feelings of love, regret, fear, desire and relief despite barriers of race, distance or culture.
