A Matter of InterpretationLee Kwangkuk IFFR 2015 99′
In his playful and humorous second film, Lee demonstrates his narrative talent, if only by not getting lost when he allows his characters (including pushy detectives and unemployed actors) to interpret each other’s dreams. Once again, we can describe the former assistant to Hong Sang-soo as his sorcerer’s apprentice. Nominated for The Big Screen Award
Set Me FreeKim Tae-Yong IFFR 2015 108′
Autobiographically inspired feature debut by one of South Korea’s greatest talents is an unusual coming-of-age film.
