25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
robinson or me (From the Far East)
We are all Robinson in our own minds. It looks like a room where behind its walls the human soul wanders and drowns in helplessness. Until he discovers solid ground in the form of daily rituals, in the water spraying from the shower, or in the tea bag at the bottom of the mug. The banal detail, accompanied by the adaptation of Karel Krolow's poems and aliquot songs, is fed by spirituality.
"Cho's single-channel tapes and installations are formalist, almost painterly explorations of subjectivity and the subconscious." Seoungho Cho
