Experiencing Interruptions?

Broken Potato

【Synopsis】
With one after another booms,large holes suddenly appeared in the town.
No one knew what the holes were and where they came from. Curiosity seekers were swarming all over the town and everyone tried to take advantage of these holes to do what they wanted all the time.

【Director's Interpretation】
There is a small hole in the potato,each slice of the hole is shaped differently.
When you don't know what the hole it is, you know what the hole is.
This is a film that can be read.Each frame will provide an overload of information by which to catch up with the speed of the modern information world.
Taking the hole as an excuse, but nothing to do with the hole.

All the characters are played by the director, each one a different slice of the director, and she also exists as one of the slices of society.

Director Water's testimony, which has been made public for the first time, is that We don't know what it is, but it doesn't affect everyone.Because It doesn't matter what it is. What's more important is to see how we can make use of it.

if I were a viewer, I'd be watching.
If I were a consumer, I would buy products related to the hole.
If I were a businessman, I would also take shortcuts.
If I'm a journalist, I'll also make a fuss.
If I were a director, I would make a film out of it.
