The typewritten text is the original idea sketch for Cha's film "White Dust From Mongolia." The film was never completed. In the typewritten text Cha describes in detail the two narratives of the film, Narrative I and II. See museum # 1992.4.281 for the rough script. See also museum #1992.4.22/81/83-96/104-105/281/405/409/427 In the typewritten text Cha describes the film as "a simultaneous account of a narrative, beginning at two separate points in Time. The two points function almost as two distinctive narratives, the "Times" overlap during the diagesis of the film and a final conversion of the two points are achieved to one complete superimposition, to one point in Time." Narrative I "begins in the Past, within the interior of memory itself. The memory materializes physically on the screen...the screen is the memory projected-the viewer "sees" physically, the memory images." Narrative II "begins in the Present, with the Telling and Retelling process of the "Recit."..(she) is at the moment of return to retrieve events past." The two Narratives merge in the end.
