The film presents an aerial shot of the vast farming area in California’s Imperial Valley. Without exposing the horizon, the camera scours the endless furrows along the farmlands and shows up something difficult to perceive. The irrigation system that will inevitably become an ecological disaster is sustained by industrial agricultural production. And by tirelessly capturing this, the film broadens our awareness of excess and crisis. (HAN Song-i)
