Human makes ′human′.
Director's Note
The film starts by showing how mannequins are produced. Tracing the human history or the images of capitalism that are consumed in the form of human figures, it broadens the boundaries of the film. The replicas that replicate human beings are made in the periphery of the city, and those that live in the periphery dream of moving toward the center of the society while they produce ′human′ figures. In the end, the film points out that the human figures that we have been dreaming of are not ′humans,′ and those that dream of idealized humans are also the ′replicas′ of capitalism. Through this paradox, the film hopes to capture the links that connect different aspects of the society of our time.
