A Story of Elusive snow is a story of a woman who seeks Seoul’s snow in Los Angeles. Minha Park identifies herself with snow as a stranger in Los Angeles.

However, her seemingly impossible attempt to find snow encountered unexpected results. Interestingly, Los Angeles was filled with numerous different representations of snow. There were lots of synthetic snow effects for Hollywood movie industries. From discovering special effects factories called ‘Snow Business Hollywood’ to ‘Magic Snow Co.’ which is working for shopping malls in downtown L.A, she could finally find this melancholic winter, white Christmas, in L.A.

In this film, her personal longing for snow meets with our more fundamental desire towards elusive time, magic, and illusion.
