SYNOPSIS

Hana, a factory worker who has just become an adult, cannot fully grasp such complicated terms such as “labor union” or “subcontract worker.” To her, the only thing that matters is earning enough money to support herself and her grandmother. 

PROGRAM NOTE

Hana, a factory subcontractor who supports her grandmother alone cannot participate in a contract worker's union strike. When the price of risky labor leads to sudden layoffs, a sense of devastated sadness sets in. The film's title must be a Kafkaesque metaphor for an alienated existence where even the value of solidarity has become powerless. Bug is an allegory of isolation and a harsh and realistic fantasy of an employment relationship that is ruthless to humans. The film suddenly stops at the sad fateful moment when a surplus being outside the social system gradually becomes transparent and eventually evaporates into a miserable being. A cold and heartless ending that leaves no room for mourning. [SONG Hyojoung]
