"If death is like this, then death isn't so bad after all"
Min-woo, a film director is in a coma due to an accident. He strangely wanders like a ghost on a desolate embankment road around the new town where he was trying to film.
This place, which may be just his thought or consciousness, was paradoxically a paradise for him, who lived a busy and noisy life. Then one day, he met a man who doesn't remember anything and believes he's dead. Min-woo, who was talking about the fate of those who wanted to make stories of movies and stories, sympathizes with the fate of the dying man at a young age and the two get closer and closer. Min-woo tries to escape with him thinking he might be dead, but he's already getting used to the place and finding peace of mind...
Life and death exist and disappear in an empty place, similar to the afterlife, strange to say that it is not another world, and only a 'story' remains.
Directed by Woo Gyenghee

Those feminists of the time, how are you all doing?
Feminism has been the top issue in Korean society in the recent years. Books on feminism have been selling like hot cakes, and the '#me too' campaigns have also been active, accusing sexual violence in various fields, including the art world. At the same time, a strong backlash has developed against feminism. What is it about being a feminist, when the hatred for feminists has become stronger, and the discourse on feminism has become more intense than ever? I wanted to find the answer to the question. I decided to visit the so-called 'young feminist' friends who had been active from the late 1990s to the early and mid-2000s. I hoped to see, through their responses to questions that may not facilitate clear cut answers, their daily lives and thoughts, what it meant to live as a feminist, how the feminist orientation could bring about positive changes in the Korean society. I had also hoped to record a certain phase of history of the Korean Women's Movement.
