Synopsis Program Note
Jewel is a young female director. A less than adept storyteller, she attempts to write a script about the only person she knows intimately, herself. While trying to get lost in the writing process, she searches for her elusive “real” self. Finding only a simple and sheltered girl looking out at a diverse and fantastic world, she gets unsolicited advice from friends and family alike. Jewel begins to wonder: What makes a “real” movie?
Human Vessel asks a question about the self-identity of women, film directing, and image in the age of digital media. The search for the real self amidst the amplifying digital images and self-directing is lost in the labyrinth or ends up in a ridiculous predicament. In a rapidly growing global city, thoughts about the female subjects in a hyper-reality where everything seems connected, but is disconnected, offer an interesting perspective. [HONG So-in]
