Island, 2015, HD video, sound, 28 minutes 35 seconds
Directed, filmed and edited by Ellie Kyungran Heo
Translated by CL-Jame, Karine Jones
This film features an island at the southern-most point of South Korea, which requires less than an hour to cover its terrain. On the island, there are two extremely contrasting atmospheres, from crowded hordes to hours of emptiness. These emphasise its position geographically and psychologically as an island.
In Island, gazing at some residents on the island, the questions 'where are you now?', 'why are you here?' and 'what happened to you?” would be asked to the film’s subjects, audience, and the director herself.
