Han Ok-hee (b. 1948)
Untitled 77-A (1977)
무제 77-A The film contains the despair of an artist’s desire for creation on ruthless censorship, rebel, and anxiety in the mid-70s when it was politically and socially depressed.

A dynamic mosaic with monumental orchestra accompaniment shows the South Korea of the 1970s as one of the strongest economies of the region. Images of progress of the civilization and modern lifestyle interspersed with strong cultural and religious tradition make an appeal to the divided nation to unite.

This film reflects the gloomy social reality of the mid-1970s through the self-portrait of an artist creating a work. It addresses the artist’s inner reality and feelings including the desire for newness, inner conflict, fear of conception, and the process of painful creation.
