"국민체조 (National Gymnastics)" 

2017

Welcome to my Hometown! 
고향 방문을 환영합니다!

This film is not meant to be interpreted but rather experienced visually and audibly, as if you were in a slow car ride back to your childhood home. Take a journey through the nostalgic, yet bizarre visual landscape of my memories and imagination. 
"National Gymnastics (국민체조)" is the name of the Korean national morning exercise routine invented by the government and practiced in schools since the 70's until the early 2000's.
