SAN

Director:

Jin Woo

7'

2019

South Korea

There are Appa, Daughter, and kid living in the mountain. Appa wants to feed his daughter, but she wants to run away from the table.

“In shadowy ink and pencil, Jin Woo’s San is an absurd and unsparing watch - an animated depiction of inherited trauma, and poignant assertion of our finiteness as individuals. Each day, Daughter consumes great mouthfuls of darkness and offers limbs and viscera to her visiting relatives until one day, so depleted, she fragments. Though we never see Daughter rebuild herself outside of this mechanised family routine, the mastery of style and hand-worked tactility of Daughter’s world assures us of Jin’s presence and potentiality, extending to us as viewer a gentle reminder for self-preservation.”
