October 28–November 11, 2021

From the internet, I collect information on events, accidents, births, and deaths that occurred on October 21 from 1920 to 2020 throughout the world. I compile one hundred years’ worth of data that share this keyword.

1021 is an animation narrating the lives of protagonists October and Haima, but it can also reflect the life of anyone. Most of the events on that day that the artist discovered through her collection process reveal similar patterns throughout history.

1021 is one of seven shorts presented by the 18th edition of the Experimental Film and Video Festival in Seoul – EXiS, as part of a special selection on e-flux Video & Film, streaming for two weeks from October 28 to Novermber 11 and accompanied by a conversation between EXiS 2021 programmer Inhan Cho and e-flux’s Lukas Brasiskis. See the full program here.

The program is part of the series Festival Forum on e-flux Video & Film, presenting collaborations with established and emerging moving-image festivals from around the world.
