Dream Preserved

Directed by Stephen Kang (2010)

This film narrates the story of Mark and his fridge, which seems to be the only space he can claim – a place where he feels safe and has a sense of belonging. Mark’s sense of loss, his ambivalent and unsettled life conditions,  doing odd jobs such as standing in long queues at the New Zealand immigration office for other people, are portrayed in the story with an acrimonious tone. This is the first film made about Korean migrants in New Zealand.
