Unnie
"Unnie" (older sister in Korean), is a short film that discusses family, culture, love, and trauma. This film approaches these themes in a gentle, nuanced way as the story is told by my sister through a interview I recorded. Her responses are layered under symbolic, abstract visuals that were filmed in the neighbourhood I grew up in. This film embodies the relationship I have with my sister and how it has shaped me into the person I am today.
This film challenges the notion that there is a “correct” way to express or receive love. We are often taught in Western culture how our parents “should” express love for their children, and being unable to relate to that norm can be very uncomfortable. Love languages can be different depending on various factors such as culture, language, upbringing, etc. This film tells a story of love being expressed in a somewhat unconventional way and validates such experiences.
