SYNOPSIS

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a series of video letters are sent to the director's sister in Seoul. Should we want to return to the "old normal"? The autofictional film juxtaposes the Korean and Dutch contexts of contact tracing, biopolitics, and crowd control practices, each of which intensifies the stigmatization and violence against queer communities and people of Asian descent.​

 

PROGRAM NOTE

A letter from another country says when “I” was happy or sad, what happened around me, what I thought of, and what I cared about. This letter of calm tone makes us recognize the world around us wider. Like a large mirror higher than my height, the film reflects beyond the world that I’ve ever seen while letting me know I am living in that world, not separated from that. How would we reply to this letter? [YU Eunjeong]
