We're all familiar with architect Itami Junís artistic world, but his life as Japanese-Korean Yoo Dongryong isnít very well known. What is the root of Itami Junís incredible architecture? The Sea of Itami Jun holds the answer to that question. The film looks at Itami Junís life through interviews with various people that knew him well. But it doesnít radically turn his life into a single narrative. After majoring in film, director Jung Da-woon studied architecture in England. She focuses on ďimage telling,Ē which is storytelling through space in "The Sea of Itami Jun". By staring calmly into the architectural space, the film invites the audience into the image. And we come face to face with a Korean immigrant who had to endure intense struggles going between Korea and Japan. It is like looking at the portrait of an artist and fighter who birthed a unique world in the midst of acute tension. (Lee Hyuk-sang)
