While researching migratory birds in Cheorwon, South Korea, along the demilitarized zone that separates the North and the South, the filmmaker came across a woman whose house was full of photographs from the other side of the border. A mix of historical documentary and fiction, Orphans [a requiem] is about the hidden trauma of the Korean War, and the birds that seem to echo that history across the peninsula.
