"The Sea of Itami Jun" (2019)
Directed by Jung Da-woon
We're all familiar with architect Itami Jun's artistic world, but his life as Japanese-Korean Yoo Dongryong isn't very well known. What is the root of Itami Jun's incredible architecture? The Sea of Itami Jun holds the answer to that question. The film looks at Itami Jun's life through interviews with various people that knew him well. But it doesn't radically turn his life into a single narrative. After majoring in film, director Jung Da-woon studied architecture in England. She focuses on "image telling", which is storytelling through space in "The Sea of Itami Jun". By staring calmly into the architectural space, the film invites the audience into the image. And we come face to face with a Korean immigrant who had to endure intense struggles going between Korea and Japan. It is like looking at the portrait of an artist and fighter who birthed a unique world in the midst of acute tension. (Lee Hyuk-sang)
