Overview

In my high school senior year, I began filming me and my friends as we studied hard to get into a good university. As time goes by, I become a university student, but still feel the same anxiety I felt like a high school student. One day, I get a call from my high school friend saying she is not doing well. I try to help her, but it doesn’t go well. I decide to write a letter to her.

Review

Saving a Dragonfly is a documentary that questions the meaning of college in the lives of young people. However, its way of asking questions is so desperate and sometimes extreme. Because the director Hong did not want her own name to be tarnished as an examinee, she raised the question in high school. Years after Hong made a documentary about college entrance exams, We Didn’t Start the Fire (2014), she continues questioning; why do we have to go to college, and why aren't we happy even though we're in college? This documentary, centered on the story of the director herself and her friends, seems like a healing hum that gently relieves pains and mourns for those who sacrificed a lot to get into college. The film resonates with the director's earnest desire to save herself and her friends like a dragonfly drowning in the water. [MOON Seok]
