In the wake of climate change and depletion of natural resources, eco-friendly bio-fuels have become the main energy source. In Busan, Surisol Underwater Lab, which manages biomass fuels, is established. Sohila, a researcher, hears bad news from AI Surisol and goes out to conduct reconnaissance in the waters in question.
At The Surisol Underwater Lab, which was also exhibited at the Busan Biennale last year, overlooks the current time with a science fiction vision. This film sets and starts in an underwater lab off the coast of Busan where Sohila, a researcher and refugee from Yemeni, works. It tells the story of Sohila reflecting on her memories of the COVID-19 era. Director Kim Ayoung, who calls her cinematic methodology “speculative fiction,” criticizes our reality that imposes greater discrimination against immigrants in the age of pandemic. (MOON Seok)
