ABOUT THE FILM

"Phonograms" are an ideogram. These ideograms we come across everyday, found on billboards and neon signs, become meaningful only when they are linked together. In this film, the linking of such ideograms have been taken away to express the feeling of loneliness after an existing element disappears, as well as the feeling of freedom from the bonds of everyday life.

My only language is English, but the film effectively reminded me of the overwhelming number of messages we receive in daily life via ads on streets, trains, etc. I like it because it reminded me I can live without all the gadgets even if I won't be "in the know" every second.
