A chronicle of the life and times of Nam June Paik, a pillar of the American avant-garde in the 20th century, widely regarded as the father of video art, who coined the phrase “Electronic Superhighway,” and is arguably the most famous Korean artist in modern history. Features readings of the artist’s writings by Executive Producer Steven Yeun (Minari, Nope).

“A tantalizing portrait of a revolutionary Korean-born artist.”

Variety

“Essential viewing for anyone interested in the origins of video art, mass media and the internet.”
