The Korean Wedding Chest

Die koreanische Hochzeitstruhe
Ulrike Ottinger
2008 • Germany • 82’

How does myth influence contemporary life? Jewish culture and its nomadism is a theme that has always attracted Ottinger. Ester is an echo of it. The Korean Wedding Chest is a documentary fairy tale about the Korean society narrated by two giant ginseng roots, husband and wife, becoming human to see “what’s new in the old and old in the new”.
