Wavy Tales

A Film by Sunjoo Lee

Synopsis

People have told myths and stories back through time, even before we could write. However in this world explained by science and technology, could our surroundings still be imbued with storytelling and wonder? As technology advances in complexity, the mystery grows, and provokes us to create myths again in contemporary life.
Filmmaker Sunjoo Lee goes around into people’s homes asking how their microwave ovens work. “What kind of system is making the waves, and how do the waves move around?”
The rumors, fantasies and odd explanations about the invisible and unknown are told with humor and curiosity.
