VLOG #8898 | KOREAN KAROTTENKUCHEN & OUR MAKEUP ROUTINE oscillates between the lives and languages of the filmmaker and her sister, one of whom grew up in Germany, the other in Korea.  Ji Su and Ji Hoe use each other as screens to project what life might have been for them if they had been in the other place. While giggling smileys pop up on the smartphones that connect them, make-up tutorials become a negotiation of Western beauty norms, social media, and reality collapse into one, and the taste of home cooking merges with memories of racist attacks.
