La terra delle rose altee is a short animated film freely inspired by the historical sporting events linked to the two Koreas during the table tennis championships, held in Japan in 1991. On this occasion – and for the first time since the conflict – the two countries paraded under a single flag, earning the first place in the competition. It was an event with a strong symbolic significance. The story tells the last moments of the competition, focusing in particular on one of the two players and on the events that affect her family.
