The Quiet Noise
South Korea / 2020 / 63’
Noise and nuisance are the matter and the rush that provoke The quiet noise. The cause of strange suffering afflicts the director -a nuisance whose symptom is a latent noise- is the main question of this movie. A file of domestic videotapes seems to give hints of an answer. The recurrent image of a restless little girl, like willing to get out of the plane, jailed animals, and a great forest force that commands. In an almost obsessive painstaking exercise, Yeeun Kang addresses her family file as if she were auscultating it to compose with its echoes a cathartic symphony where a contained scream explodes in the ocean in the form of pyrotechnia. A sound experience that transports us both to a universal noise ─ childhood, family, home ─, and to our own non-communication.
