A man talks about suicide. He excludes any classical narrative and searches for the archetypical meaning of suicide. He communicates through images. The images of muddy tidelands, footprints, a razor, an icy river that is melting, drenching a sandy hill, and bricks passes by. And a hole that looks like a drainage hole opens up. Then the screen is filled with circular images. Images of light, an eye, a pupil, a dish, an ashtray, a candle flame, a white dish, a black dish, a hand, an onion, a razor and a bottle flash by on screen and finally the image of blood spreading in water is shown - blood, which is the symbol of both life and death.
ORG reflects the director’s political consciousness in an experimental style expressing the era’s painful memories through visual images.
