After reading "Night Ache," I wanted to incorporate its mode of processing the past into film. To do so, I dug up old footage and audio from a visit to Seoul last spring for a project that never came to pass. "Night Ache" gave me a perfect, twinging opening to excavate this footage and repiece it into a whole. To layer the past with light.
