SYNOPSIS

Kitty and Tommy live in Korea, Mia and Emma in Japan. COVID-19 prevents them from meeting in person. However, they form a special friendship through video calls, AR avatars, and an automatic translation function on chat apps. Through screens, they teleport into each other’s lives, transcending language and distance. 

PROGRAM NOTE

Nothing is unreachable if the mind is open. Teleporting pleasantly and delightfully draws the daily lives of Korean and Japanese women who constantly communicate in the virtual world of the Internet in the era of the pandemic. Although their lifestyles and personalities differ, the discrimination and fear they have experienced as Asian women who live in the same period intersect. It is also notable that the film not only points out bias but stands out for its attempt to strengthen solidarity beyond physical barriers. [KIM Jung-eun ]
