Sejin Kim works with a variety of media apparatuses, including documentary realism and cinematic language to explore various and perplexing relationships between individuals and contemporary society systems. This will chronicle the anxiety and fear, loneliness and alienation, conflict and confusion, and such conditions an individual endures in trying to negotiate his/her existence and identity in a society that sustains itself by placing limitations on its members.

I will research global movements of immigration/migration with a variety of reasons, especially in Finland I would like to track down people who have been coping with a severe weather such as a lack of sunshine or white night or whole darkness that can change a condition of human being’s physical and mental status then collect storytelling of people who are under those circumstances to understand reasons how/what makes them decide to leave the harsh condition of life or remain. —Sejin Kim
