This film is an homage to Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, a visionary Korean-American conceptual artist who was born under the fire of the Korean War and immigrated to San Francisco in 1963. Her work has been shown at the Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley, CA; Artists Space, New York; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and the Bronx Museum of Art, New York, among other venues. A major retrospective exhibition of her work, entitled The Dream of the Audience: Theresa Hak Kyung Cha (1951-1982) was organized by University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive in 2001, and traveled to five cities, including Seoul, Korea. Once a NSCAD visiting artist, she was tragically killed three days after her first book, Dictée was published in 1982.
