Synopsis
 Staying in bed till late on a cold winter’s afternoon, Eujin finds a small dust kid. She decides to do the cleaning she has been putting off for so long. Cleaning every corner of her room, she keeps finding other dust kids here and there, and starts clearing them up one by one. Just when she thinks she has cleaned up her room and the dust kids are all gone now, she comes face to face with another one....


 

Program Note
 One winter day, Eujin finds little dust kids on the bed when she wakes up. They look like her. She tries to clean them up but they constantly appear all over the house. It seems that her own shape, which she had forgotten or tried to forget at least for the time being, came to her to insist that she look back. Regardless how hard she cleans, the dust kids quickly come back to the room. This film is a simple but polished animation that brings us the moment of self-examination in our daily lives. It was invited to Cannes, 2009. (PARK Mi-young)
