Summary
This "Making of" documentary is an exemplary sample of the genre, observing the ideas and experiences involved in making the feature film, Traps, directed by Pauline Chan. Traps was Pauline's first feature after several award-winnng short films, and expectations were high among her backers, including the Japanese distributor-producer Hara Masato who had backed many films by Kurosawa and other giants of world cinema. Apart from the personal pressure of those expectations, Traps was one of the first Western films to be shot in Vietnam after the War, and the production involved numerous logistic and political challenges. There were also difficult personal dynamics to contend with, almost inevitable in a very tightly budgeted film. Given these elements, the decision was made by the Australian distributor of the feature to follow the course of the production as a stand-alone documentary. Pauline Chan opened herself up to scrutiny by the camera throughout the production of Traps, but also shared her personal thoughts in a diary format. The intimacy of the film is rare in the "making of" genre. When released in 1994, Traps did not fare well, either with critics or at the box-office, and the film is ripe for re-evaluation as a personal and intensely idiosyncratic work, of which Making Traps is a remarkable testament.
