After Stray Dogs, I stopped developing scripts.
However, I never stopped making films.
Within a few years,
I’ve made eight films
based on the concept of Kang’s slow walking.
Meanwhile, in real life,
Kang suffered a strange physical illness.
It pained me to see his frail appearance.
Because his infirmity continued for so long,
I sometimes filmed it.
Though I didn’t know how I’d use the footage.
Three years ago, I met a Laotian worker in Bangkok.
Via our video chat,
I saw him cooking his hometown foods
in his rather shabby room.
I felt compelled to fly over and film him.
And just like that,
I began making another film.
