Still Moving: Korean Wedding Chest, 2008


Ulrike Ottinger’s exploration of love and marriage in South Korea traces rituals both ancient and contemporary, ranging from traditional temples to the mega-city of Seoul, with its beauty parlours and secular wedding venues. With an eye equally attuned to the humorous, kitsch and the profound, The Korean Wedding Chest is typical of Ottinger’s sensitivity to contradiction and complexity. The film’s central motif is the creation and unpacking of the old-fashioned wedding chest of the title: Ottinger shows us how modern myths and rites contain the old within them, and vice versa.
