Heureux que/ happy that “Greening Korea: From Hadong” to be screened in Italy.
YouTube link: https://youtu.be/ex6K64LYVkc
Synopsis: A personal documentary about the agricultural life in Hadong-gun, the region of South Korea where my wife grew up. Filming was on the farm belonging to her family, and in the marketplace of the nearby town.
Green tea production is particularly prevalent in Hadong. But its farmers are under extreme economic pressure. More than this, Koreans’ habits in terms of favored beverages are changing, and the popularity of coffee is having a severely detrimental effect on green tea sales.
Kimchi, on the other hand, remains a staple of the Korean diet. And kimchi-making (kimchang) remains a traditional activity in most Korean households. Usually a group activity, after my wife’s mother’s death, my wife took this over duty solely.

Plus d'exemples de la façon dont un roman manuscrit peut exister en tant que forme de "film". L'idée ici est que les illustrations sont cruciales, et le ms. devrait exister comme un véritable roman - pas simplement un scénario écrit initialement comme un scénario. (La différence de longueur entre les deux est significative.)
