Synopsis Program Note
After the break-up with the lover, the remains of the memories that are almost forgotten but still all remembered are observed when she knits. Threads that are never easily connected and the wounds on the hands, they seem to show that she is doing fine with the break-up but in the inside, they present memories that will never be erased and wounds that keep worsening because of ever-existent memories after the love.
The Knitting, the debut film by YOON Eun-hye, magnificently describes the psychology of a woman who comes to accept the breakup of her relationship. The film takes us on her journey as she unravels, reconnects and once again unravels the remnants of her memory after breaking up with her lover. The yarn is not easily knitted, and holes and scars form here and there. The breakup comes without warning, inexplicably, yet it remains as something that needs to be gradually accepted, just as people have to accept that time goes on. [HONG So-in]
