Trees in Summer Suyu Lee

Films A to Z

One spring, when the cherry trees are in bloom, a woman learns she is seriously ill. From then on, each moment takes on new importance and each detail becomes a source of wonder. Her new relationship with time, emotions and the world around her causes vivid, palpable memories of childhood to resurface, bridging past and present as she wages war against time. The film is a diary in which filmmaker Suyu Lee documents an ordeal with an impressionistic, poetic collage. A tree, a street, a bit of sky, a dog or a childhood memory, all appear as fleeting fragments, full of life and beauty: responses and resistance to sinister images of medical scanners and chilling diagnoses. (Apolline Caron-Ottavi)
