TIME TABLE
SYNOPSIS

Zoea: A larval form of crabs, next stage from the egg. Young woman arrives at a fish farm through a broker. News reports about a mysterious boat found near the coastal area of Taean, South Chungcheong. Yun-soo and Yeon-gyo’s mundane routine continues as they clean the water tanks.

DIRECTING INTENTION

Endless questions came up to my mind when I first heard the news about a suspected smuggling boat which was later found out that it had took 15 hours to reach the Korean coast. I wanted to make the location itself the main character, and to draw how coming back to a certain place can be a coincidence but also an excuse. Repetitive sounds and exaggerated ambience within the film is to explore how these certain sounds evoke involuntary memories.
