Hoeun - Legend of Ashoka

  • Korea

  • Documentary
Hoeun has left for India to follow the legend of Hanuman, the god of India and has had to wander between mountains. Hampi is a village filled with mountainous piles of stones, which Hoeun constantly climbs up and then falls from. He often feels anxiety when he wakes up in the morning without rocks to climb, and so Hoeun focuses on ascending, and the camera unceasingly follows his movement in detail. This experimental documentary reflects the director’s fate and inner mind and reveals that he can be free from the conflicts and pain in real-life only in the moment of climbing. This is Hoeun’s journey, which looks like the aimless path of Hanuman. (Billy CHOI)
