Turmeric Border-Marks
TURMERIC BORDER-MARKS is an experimental documentary set in modern Seoul, Korea, where an intersection becomes two stories of migration, globalization, hybrid identity, cracked mirrors and turmeric (a yellow spice powder). A young Korean-American college student voyages back to the motherland where she meets South Asian migrant workers. These parallel stories illuminate and question our assumptions of identity and culture, as well as power and resistance. Through interviews, poems, super-8 imagery, and a bizarre Bangladesh wedding scene over a speaker phone, we witness a changing world, and a twist to the word "post-modern".
