Review

The film is a short note on the present and the future of Europe seen through images. The camera follows a man who lost memories after being robbed and wanders around in search of his lost past and new self. His travel is hardly about searching for identity but about an act of exploration into his lost time and the uncertain future. In this abstract film, the fabric of images remind us of the drifting present of Europe. Places he visits are used as a tool to deliver the sense of crisis and chaos. The film can be an adventure embarked by a veiwfinder. With the approach, the director wanted to find how to express a future from the present and a future of cinema. (LEE Sang-yong)
