A road movie style performance and a single channel video recorded by a thermal camera. A special tour bus full of passengers is dragged around on a pilgrimage by a person beating a drum. The tour bus visits the Ipobo embankment, which is one of the constructions sites of Korea’s 4 Rivers Project where entrance is forbidden, a Han River cruise ship dock that has long been closed, and a ghost town of an apartment complex.
Along with the sound of a drum, a bus makes a pilgrimage to Ipobo construction site, deserted dock at Han River, and empty apartments which are prohibited to enter. The director uses a infrared camera to get an access to these restricted areas, which gives the film an illusionary look of a negative film as an implication of the hidden truth behind a positive image. Taking a form of a road movie, this film is a ritual performance that mourns what is vanishing under the ‘positive’ image of development policy. (KWON Eun-sun)
