Moving to a new culture involves a significant psychological adjustment that includes learning new interpersonal and social behaviours, adapting to new values, and becoming part of a minority group. For many, the experience of moving to a new culture can feel like a strong gust of wind on a spring day (춘람), bringing with it sudden challenges and palpable changes in the environment.
This short animated film tells the autobiographical fiction of a young immigrant's journey, exploring the challenges and experiences of adjusting to a new environment. The main character goes through a range of emotions, including interest, excitement, confusion, and loneliness. Through the use of a window (Raam) as a metaphorical medium, the film allows us to peek into the character's mind as she ultimately find the last emotion, acceptance.
