Island (0+)

Poland, 2005, colour, 49 min.
Director: Tae Young Park
Right in the middle of a tiny island in Korea called Jah Wol-Do is an asylum for elderly people run by a Christian foundation. A 34 year old epileptic woman lives among the old people. Abandoned there by her family, she is placed in the care of the priest, who is more concerned by the escape of some black goats or the effectiveness of the symbol of the cross. She is bored, hurts herself and wants to leave, but cannot, and she is not sure if she is satisfied with a helmet. This strange community gradually mixes the plots of an intermittent story that is reminiscent of Faulkner.
