This experimental film follows several non-linear trajectories that are constantly evolving into various different dimensions and revealing new transitional spaces. Elements such as water, birds, and trains accompany the viewer on a dreamlike journey between the painterly compositions of an oceanic landscape and outer space.
In addition to her experimental films, Boston-based South Korean visual artist Moon Youjin is also no stranger to painting, drawing, and light installations. Her works, which blur the lines between reality and dream, have been screened at a number of international film festivals. Jihlava IDFF presented her films Callisto (2014) and io (2015).
