Description

Madang is an artist and new father who moves to a quiet home in the countryside, excited to build a new life with his family.

But soon his attention is diverted back to his impoverished parents back in Seoul in a dingy basement apartment. With an ailing mother and an alcoholic father, Madang struggles to overcome the exhaustion of trying to be everything: a good son, devoted father, and loving husband.

To cope, he reminisces about their family meals together and his mother’s kimchi, a traditional dish that is prepared by the family and requires months of fermentation.

A beautiful meditation on how the kitchen and communal cooking-both past, present and future - bind a family together amidst the inevitable.
