 Synopsis
 Ana, a fifty-year-old woman falls into a depression when her husband leaves her. One day, she decides to go out of this depression and starts changes from the outside to the inside.


 


 Program Note
 Sometimes, life changes begin from despair. Ana experiences inexpressible despair after her husband leaves her. The absence of her husband, who was everything to her, makes Ana reflect back on her life. Ana’s eyes that were glancing down on her own appearance gradually penetrate into the deepest part of her and suddenly discover her hidden sexuality. Ana’s life, which was suppressed by the fear of other people’s perceptions of her, slowly starts to change as she discovers her desires. Her turnaround from a servant of life to a master of life is superbly captured through the intersecting eyes and the shaky camera work. (LEE Hyo-jeong)
