A Fool’s Errand

Drawing upon the Korean penchant for elaborate public art, A Fool’s Errand documents the construction of a recent installation by artists to celebrate the season of Lent and the temporal nature of decay.

*** – After watching Evan Mather’s short documentary A Fool’s Errand, one is very tempted to think, so what? Running only five minutes in length, Mather’s film documents the creation of a particular piece of art by Naomi Wong Mai-Xing. With no explicit arguments presented, A Fool’s Errand impresses one as strictly educational. Made possible in part by support from Western Pennsylvania Public Television, the documentary’s tone is ideal for public television. It is informative, and rather than make some ideological statement or leave the viewer with any significant sense of enlightenment, A Fool’s Errand offers pieces of knowledge. – Film Threat
