Korean Premiere | 2014 International Short Film Festival Oberhausen – Best Contribution to the German Competition / 2015 Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival – Grand Prix Synopsis Program Note
A cinematic devotional book. Based on interviews with an unemployable sufferer (and his fellows), living in the East German countryside. Who lost his memory in 1989 and woke up into several nightmares.
Twisting the phrase in the \'Book of Psalms\', \"Seven times a day I praise you,\" this cinematic devotional book is based on the interview with a man in Eastern Germany who lost his memory long time ago and suffers from nightmares every night. In this experimental film, the ravaged inner side of an individual is visualized through text banners and miniatures. Winning awards in prestigious film festivals such as Dresden, Hamburg, Oberhausen, and Clermont-Ferrand, this film talks about fear and disgust against the backdrop of cute and friendly setting. And the ending brings ultimate sadness with the outcry of people wrecked in the world: \"There\'s no ship to come save us.\" [LEE Jeeheng]
