Introduction
"Light & Coin" presents a coin producer that uses light as its source, and will this almighty machine nothing is impossible. And, there are people who are becoming shadows because they cannot stop giving up light to run the machine. "Light & Coin", through a fable, describes an irony of human's uncontrolled greed or capitalism. Showing his story in this animated film, the director has succeeded in making it more refined and fantastic. Life of Yirang tribesmen filled with bright, dazzing light is in contrast to that of shadow people, which brings nostalgia for the light-filled Agricultural Age. (Eun Ju Lee)
