An uncontacted tribe is an experimental film that undertakes a ritual journey to endangered faunas combining dance, 3D graphic animation, and sound. Following the concept of the "Transboundary protected area ", the DMZ (the Korean Demilitarised Zone between South Korea and North Korea) becomes an “unexpected paradise” for endangered animals. The shaman is possessed by the spirit of a red-crowned crane, a central symbol in Korean culture. The spirit invites us on a magical flight to experience unexplored territory beyond our physical limits.
The Film is presented with paper installations.
