Daily Rituals

Daily Rituals is an ethnographic film documenting the daily lives of young people in London and Korea, to create an engaging, poetic, and lyrical story. The focus is on climate change and consumption activities, avoiding the usual imagery of smokestacks and polar bears. Instead, the film simply follows individuals over one day, combining this footage to give a cross-cultural perspective on consumption through these everyday activities. Twelve participants engaged in both filming and being filmed, and the film is edited along with a soundtrack inspired by the traditional music of the shamans of Jeju Island in Korea, a protected habitat especially affected by climate change. The film premiered simultaneously in Seoul, Korea and Coventry, UK, and was commissioned by the British Council and Korea Foundation.
