TIME TABLE
SYNOPSIS

A contented tiger lovingly reared in captivity escapes from the zoo, discovering an outside world that somehow seems familiar? But in fact isn’t. This is a visually stunning tale, symbolic on many levels, about the devices people use to arbitrarily define situations or individuals.

DIRECTING INTENTION

‘幻’(Whan) means illusion. In this story, there is a huge gap between the tiger and the people. The people are inconsistent to the tiger and act differently without the cage. What makes the people avoid the tiger and shoot her? It is the cage. Through the existence of the cage, the tiger’s individual identity is erased.
