Planet of Snail Portland Premiere
A journey to the muted world that can only be reached by touch.
A wondrous documentary that's been winning over audiences around the world, "Planet of Snail" is a journey into the life of a most extraordinary couple. Young-Chan is an accomplished poet who can no longer hear or see. He communicates with his wife through finger braille, a unique form of communication where words are tapped on each other's hands. They rely on one another completely; even simple domestic tasks require complex collaboration and everyday moments that most of us hardly notice become tender shared experiences. Combining breathtaking imagery with Young-Chan's personal writings, "Planet of Snail" becomes a transfixing portrait of life on what seems like another planet, where touch communicates everything and love conquers all.
