Night Walk


A landscape film comprised of nightscapes, drawings, and excerpts from poems by the literati of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).

'In my neighbourhood, the mountain is snug and the stream murmurs, every night lulling the vibrance of day into serenity. One night, crouching on a cold rock in the midst of the dark blue brook, I saw the sky in the water. The indigo gleam of the flowing moon dyed my senses and I became one with the sky and the water and the crisp air in between. Since then, taking a walk by the stream is like strolling in someone else's dream. The soft breeze from the mountain sways my hair gently, and I wait for my sleep to be broken.

'I put a lot of effort into recording the sound separately during filming, but the sounds continued to be annoying during the editing process. The senses I felt seemed to be dulled and diminished. One day, I accidentally turned off the sound and only looked at the images, drawings, and writings I had taken, and I actually felt even more inspired. So I removed the sound later.' - SOHN Kooyong
