여섯 명의 사람들이 아파트에 살고 있다. 그들이 사는 아파트와 지구의 상태는 계속 악화되지만, 서로를 모르는 여섯 사람은 고립된 상태로 하루하루를 보낸다. 그들은 아파트와 함께 몸이 부식되고 죽어가지만, 끝까지 살고자 하는 의지를 놓지 않는다. 우울하고 절망적이면서 한편으론 긍정적인 힘을 보여주는 이 영화는 죽음을 향해 달려가는 과정 속에 오히려 돋보이는 인간의 잠재적인 생명력을 보여준다.
Six Apartments is a poetic document of decline and deterioration -both physical and conceptual. Six isolated residents of six different apartments live their lives unaware of each other. They eat their food, wander between rooms, bathe, watch television, and sleep. For them, this is life.
Yet while it may appear that nothing is happening here, the apartment building and its inhabitants’ bodies are aging, giving way to bacteria, larva, and finally transformation. Televisions and radios tell them about the destruction of the planet but it does not seem to affect their lives. Everything is in a state of resolute conversion. Immense drama does exist: chaos overcomes order and rot supersedes life. The residents’ lives are moving slowly towards death following the deliberate and methodical rhythms of their uniform days. This continuous erosion of bodies, buildings, and the planet, reveals the ever-active potential of death and its material processes.
In their passivity and isolation, the inhabitants emerge as the true form of death, while the rooms they inhabit maintain the ongoing transformation of life. The potential of life, then, exists only in the process of death.
Eventually all forms of life are consumed by new life.
