Information

-Synopsis

At a deserted empty neighborhood lot in Seoul lives an old dog. As people just pass by, the dog spends its time solitarily chasing birds and dozing off in the sun. At first people seem indifferent to the dog until little by little, they start pulling out memories of it. The camera floats through memory and reality to start gazing at the faces of the people who have become just parts of the landscape.

-Program Note

Everyone and everything has a story and so does Baek-gu, a stray dog living on the streets of a quite residential neighborhood in Seoul. When and how has Baek-gu come and lived in this neighborhood, alone with no owner or family? Beginning with questions about an old stray dog, Baek-gu is a documentary-essay film digging into the stories and traces of lives that are easily neglected, forgotten and disappearing in modern city life. While following these stories, the director reveals her own floating life, frequently moving from one pace to another, and memories of her past. As neighborhoods, relationships, everything changes and disappears fast in the city, the trace of life or existence is easily removed and forgotten. Documenting the stories and traces of lives that are often overlooked in urban anonymity, this film offers a time to rediscover the meaning of our being and living here today. (HWANG Hei-rim)
