SHORT JOY // In the 45 years that Kwang-Ja has been an lifeline operator, she has heard innumerable stories of desperate people, many of whom were determined to take their lives. How can we help someone whose pain we have never felt ourselves? The short film offers no solution to the problem of suicides; but its evocative imagery segments enable the viewer to emotionally connect to the people who have been a breath away from death.

„Interview was conducted only through audio, as counsellors in ‘Lifeline Korea’ have conversations via phone. After repetitively listening to these interviews, I filmed images that went along with the stories... It was all part of making intangible things observable.“ Ji-Yoon Park
