Animated documentary ‘Skin color: Honey’
Post by iSiZ
Animated documentary wins Audience Award at Annecy International Animated Film Festival 2012. This month released ‘Couleur de peau: Miel’ is based on Henin’s own experience as a Korean man who heads back to his home country and reconciles with his roots and is co-directed with Belgian director Boileau.
He is 44 years old according to his civil status, but Jung prefers to place his birth at the age of 5, when a policeman found him wandering alone in the streets of Seoul. He is one of those 200 000 adopted Koreans spread around the world. Jung decided to return for the first time in South Korea, in order to breathe the air of his home country, tread the land of his ancestors, and maybe find traces of his biological mother. This trip of reconciliation with his roots and with himself leads our character to recall – in animation – the child he once was and the winding path that made him grow up.
