Closed - A Short Film


In the short film Closed, we enter the world of Juwon, an uneducated artisan whose inability to read makes the world around him confusing and unwelcoming. At his welding job, the sound of chanting interrupts his reverie. Curious, he follows the sound to a nearby school where kids are learning their letters. After a moment of indecision, he approaches the teacher who invites him to join the class. He initially struggles with shame and anger eventually gives in to his need to learn. Over the course of the film, we see Juwon dedicate himself to learning and slowly the world that was closed to him opens up. The film ends with us discovering his motivation: an inspiring message scribbled on an old photo.
