France / 2016 / 12' / Italian premiere


In the no man’s land dividing the two Koreas, the countryside is luxuriant and unspoiled, because since the 1950s it has been peppered with land mines for which no map exists. Starting from the testimony of a South Korean soldier, the spectator participates in a mysterious subjective camera journey, entirely created using computer graphics. During an extremely high-risk survey, the solider Kim will witness an epiphany. The film won an award at the Oberhausen International Short Film Festival.
