OVERVIEW

Seaburners is a love story of the Black Sea. As the Black Sea of Turkey in the background, a foreign woman botanist Denise and a turkish man Hamit‘s encounter is presented.

The film focuses on two persons ways of lives and wandering. Denise and Hamit’s relations are difficult because of their different cultural background and social status. Hamit who frequently drinks booze cannot occupy Denise, and a botanist Denise is totally occupied to collect plants sweeping around swamps. Making good use of sounds and images in the dark, characters’ mentalities are described and images of isolation and wandering stands out against the whole phase of the film.

This film talks about loneliness of life. The protagonists repeat meeting and saying goodbye endlessly move around to find something. But, what comes after is anger at the end. Hamit‘s figure goes toward the sea is only revealed with great sounds of waves and a gust of wind. In the swirl of something you cannot have, cannot find, in the movement the sea burns out stonily. The film portraits this movement poetically. (Lee Sang-yong)
