Update on remake of Chris Marker's La Jetee (R.I.P. Chris Marker)

La jetée (dir. Chris Marker, 1962)

After getting our studio ready and finishing the kickstarter campaign, Jonah and I were pretty exhausted. We took a couple of days to enjoy market performances, get to know some of the Gwangju artists, and spend time with the director of Mite-Ugro, Seungki Cho. It's August first and we have a lot to work to do in order to get work ready in time for the Gwangju Biennale. Here is what we are planning to accomplish in the next month:

1. My solo show will be exhibited during the same time as the Gwangju Biennale. My works with include handmade scrolls exploring the loss of traditional Korean culture.

2. Jonah and I will film a teaser trailer for Yeok so we can screen it during the time of the Gwangju Biennale.

3. Jonah and I will create a live production performance during the Gwangju Biennale of a scene from Yeok to mark the death of Chris Marker and to celebrate his life and work.
