It’s a wet dream that a man dreams during the three day period of funerary proceedings during the rainy season. In the movie, images of a corpse, carnal desire, claustrophobia, the symptoms of an oppressive society, compulsive castration, and the abyss are beautifully combined.
The first true experimental film. (Kang So-won)
Gentle, yet sumptuous images. (Kim Dong-won)
Purpose of Production
This film was made at an experimental film workshop and attempts in many ways to maintain a purely experimental spirit. It was made without a script like an improvisatory painting. We decided not to be limited by chronology and the continuity of temporal space within our storyline and character and therefore, the film was made through imaginative experimentation, producing inherent and subjective images. The film is structured to resemble the traditional 3-day funerary proceedings of Korea and it deals with corpses, obsessive carnal desire, the oppressive society, as well as claustrophobia.
