Synopsis

started from the remote possibility which I may eat the kiwi fruit in Seoul that my aunt has sent from New Zealand. I aim to overlap the voices and transnational labors of two women -my aunt, who is an early immigrant and has worked in a New Zealand kiwi packhouse for 30 years, and a young woman who worked in kiwi orchard and packhouse for a working holiday in New Zealand- from different generations as it follows the path of a kiwifruit from my home country.

 

Director's Statement

Through the voice of women from different generations, this film express the importance of mobility as a performer of social mobility, representing different social classes by showing details of labor practices and processes that are invisible at a distance. In this way, I aim to visualize how individual lives are connected to and affected by personal and social reality, and how culture transfers from one country to another.
