(Part of Sensus Communis)
Hye Jeong Cho, South Korea, 2024, 5min, 16mm

Sensus Communis : The circumstances of artists associated with their studios are very diverse. In an era where it is difficult to occupy even one square foot of residential space due to economic and social conditions, artists who own or rent studios to produce art have continued to walk a tightrope between thinking and reality. 

ZEN FOR 100ft
Jung Jun, South Korea, 2024, 2min 28sec, 16mm

To prevent meaninglessness from becoming imageless, the image obtained from the retina after passing through the pupil and lens must pass through the blind spot before going to the optic nerve. A dark room is a blind spot in an image.

Sujin Lee, South Korea, 2024,  1min 34sec, 16mm

A draft, an exercise, or the first segment of a long-term project, tracing my nephew’s evolving voice as he grows older. He talks about the time he built a snowman named Snow Ice Monster, which was later broken down and rebuilt by other children. He listens to a recording of his voice and remarks that he sounds like someone named Minjung, who does not exist in real life.

Suhyun Jeon, South Korea, 2024, 2min 04sec, 16mm

This film captures the experiences of my grandfather during COVID-19 pandemic

Yeon Gyoung Kim, South Korea, 2024, 2min35sec, 16mm

A man washes a large window, but something is not satisfactory.

Siyoung Song, South Korea, 2024, 3min 10sec, 16mm

A believer in something, a passenger, a step in and out, an express train constantly arriving and departing. The rules break like a prayer. Derived realities that one believes in, bodies passing each other, the place, the sound, the time it creates.

Jinyoung Lee, South Korea, 2024, 1min 50sec, 16mm

Travel is a process in which numerous substances are recorded to me. In the process, receipts, tickets, and plastic packaging are easily thrown away. However, those materials contain all the time, language, and air of the city. This work is a travel record that goes beyond the visually stimulating images of tourist. 

Hyerin Lee, South Korea, 2024, 1min 51sec, 16mm

I almost drowned when I was five years old during the family trip, but I don’t remember anything. I just knew, because everytime my family got together they talked about it.Few year ago, I interviewed my family and asked about the incident and found out that my mom has a whole different memory from other family members.  

Jonathan Seungjoon Lee, South Korea, 2024, 2min 30sec, 16mm

Entering from the intimate and often complicated relationships between fathers and sons, Dreams of My Father explores memories and visions from God, gods, and ghosts through a quilt work experimentation of 3D animation, family archive, and 16mm.

Boyoon Choi, South Korea, 2024, 2min 30sec, 16mm

A  result of an experiment and an exploration on the 16mm film camera shooting, developing, and hand printing of her father. 

HwiHwi, South Korea, 2024, 2min 40sec, 16mm

Fotofiction is a film that adds time to the photos by printing them on 16mm using photos taken on 35mm black and white film, around my hometown since 2011. It is about novel-like stories that occurred on this island, listing scenes left behind by people and nature as time passes.

Kyujae Park, South Korea, 2024, 5min, 16mm

Study for Three Streams was filmed at Hongjecheon in Seoul, Mokgamcheon in Gwangmyeong, and Gulpocheon in Incheon. It captures the impressions of three streams in three different cities. Each of the three streams intersects and overlaps with images of the filmmaker’s own body.
