UN SAT MODEL
France, 2013, 10'
In the mid-1980s, when documentarist Jill Godmillow wanted to film the story of the Polish Solidarity and was denied a visa by the Polish authorities, she produced the - now classic - ”Far From Poland” – a collage film which combined fragments of dreams, Solidarity footage smuggled across the border, and interviews re-enacted in New York. Some thirty years later, when Hayoun Kwon is not allowed to film in the model village built by North Koreans close to the border, she builds a scale model and films it to achieve by proxy her denied journey. The resulting film testifies to the real state of the ghost village - a mechanism of fiction unattainable other than by imagination.
The film will screen with Crop.
