THE DREAM OF THE AUDIENCE

THE DREAM OF THE AUDIENCE

DOCUMENTARY
This film is about a Korean-born American artist who reimagined home as a dream space where she and her audience can connect, commune, and collaborate in storytelling. Told through an interweaving of voices, text and image, the film takes the audience on a journey of discovery of Cha’s art and in the process gain some insights about ourselves. Drawn from memories, artifacts and Cha’s imprint on others, the narrative traces Cha’s roots, rise and death, and her continuing influence as a creative pioneer who came of age during the transformative culture of 1970s.
