A solid wooden box rife with mysterious and symbolic objects plays a fundamental part in the Korean wedding ritual. In this Ulrike Ottinger offering, this same box serves as a starting point for a trip to contemporary Seoul, where investigations necessarily lead us to invisible traditions. A fun portrait of a society that preserves surprisingly conservative rituals. A modern-day ethnographic fairy tale centered on the incredible phenomenon of new megacities emerging all around the world and their contradictory societies. Berlin Film Festival 2009.
