Heart’s Funeral, a film recreated based on the dance performance ‘♡’, approaches the theme of the transition of family through a funeral of an old family and a memorial ceremony of a new family.
Nowadays, personal entertainment devices represented by a smartphone and ‘human and non-human relationships’ in them dismantle and replace families at the same time, making us concerned and hopeful that this new world will make future families more hellish – or heavenly – than now. Portraying the reduction and collapse of the funeral hall itself, the repetition and variation in situations and characters as well as teleportation into alternate reality through electronic devices, the film embodies an experience where family relationships, both close and distant, change and transform. (* ♡ premiered as part of the KNCDC’s My Family are Off-limits in 2021.)
