1.Origin of water in the valley. The surface of the water and small creatures under the water. Static forests and rocks. Break through the two-lane road in the landscape. The Geochang Massacre Memorial Park is located at the end of the two-lan road. A desolate landscape.
2. Forgetting the present by the past. The future filled with the obvious hope. Uncombined the past and the present. Advancing the future. A desolate landscape.


Director's Statement

This film is consists of the image that shuttled from the Geochang of my parents's hometown for my past experience in order to cut the weeds of our ancestors’ graves in past years. Working this film is my interpretation of landscape about a specific experience as beautiful and fine custom. Through this working, I hope to mention about an unfinished massacre and disaster that are facing us.

Capitalism and the Cold War, cities and development. What is included and what is excluded along the edge of these concepts? That is what I am questioning through this documentary. Works on the June Democracy Movement, the Busan American Cultural Service building arson, the rocks that formed during the Cretaceous period, the military camp town in Busan, and the Geochang massacre are the results of my pondering.
