Time Worm
누에의 일생
  • 동물과 함께 사는 세상
Synopsis Time Worm is a creative documentary, which combines documentary making with a collaborative performance with the children of Kulp, Diyarbakir in Eastern Turkey. It draws parallels between the life cycle of the silkworm Bombyx Mori and the life cycle of a silk maker family. The silkworm’s fragile life starts and ends in the hands of humans just before it turns into the silk moth in order to produce a continuous thread of silk from its cocoon. The film captures silk farming; an ancient practice that brings together beauty and destruction.
