MAKYŌ (THERE IS A GHOST INSIDE YUUU)

I walk on my street and it is a wilderness.
In the wilderness, I am the only monster here.

The right to breath and to feel the fall.
Inside or outside.
A connection through matter and its dissolution.
The earth, the stone, the sand, the sea.
Dry flowers pushing out from the sand. Dissolving.
Filled bodies, unstoppable.
Earth bodies, floating inside or outside.
The right to exist, to simply be.
Pung Jeong.Gak(風精.刻) From Nakwon to Sewoon
(Joowon Song, South Korea, 11 min)
We reminisce the memories we have lost through the movement, which is an interpretation of architectural structure and the history of Sewoon Plaza and Nakwon Musical Instrument Arcade building. These buildings, as the first residential complex in Seoul, still spur the breath of old memories in a city where tall apartment complexes and big buildings invade into people’s relationship and distance.
Three friends, Young-Sun, Sung-Hyeon, and Hyo-Sun, loom around each space of Sewoon Plaza and Nakwon Musical Instrument Arcade building. and connect the memories of olden days and today to find values we have lost.
This is the 6th project of a Pung Jeong. Gak(風精.刻) series, a site-specific dance film project to revive the city space by the director/choreographer Joowon Song. Pung (風) means a wind that directs us to a certain coordinate of the geography and time. Jeong(精) means a love and soul that hide within the wind, Gak(刻) means a mark those winds leave in the city corner to connect people and influence them.
(Bella Gonzales, Los Angeles, CA, 3 min)
A film about a young woman dealing with a very personal sadness. It is the sort of emotion that is rarely expressed, but felt almost universally. The film explores the sense of psychological and spiritual crisis that lays dormant, always ready, but never actually taking hold of us.
(Hadi Moussally, France, 10 min)
Based on the dance-piece “Oh Boy!” by Antonin Rioche
“Loneliness. For some of you, the word may not be very familiar, but the feeling, though, you know it quite well.”
(Nadav Heyman, Los Angeles, CA, 6 min)
As part of the S.A.C. Artist Residency and in collaboration with Studio 1750 (South Korea), filmmaker Nadav Heyman explores the claustrophobic limits of his physicality, set in rural Thailand.
I Am All Things
(Rob Monaghan, Ireland, 9 min)
An examination of self-discovery and of evolving emotional intelligence, a meditation on environment and how we interact with it.
Filmed at an abandoned marble mine in Evora, Portugal.
