Park Jung-Bum, 2014, South Korea, 175’
Impressive and challenging story about poverty, inequality and human suffering in today’s South Korea by the maker of Tiger Award-winner Journals of Musan. He again plays a leading role himself, as a toiling worker trying to wrest himself free of his fate without giving up his humanity.
Jeppe Rønde, 2015, Denmark, 99’
Over a 5-year period in Bridgend in Wales, 79 people, many of them teenagers, committed suicide without leaving any clue as to why. This is the starting point for Danish Rønde’s feature debut - an atmospheric, at times mysterious social drama. Hannah Murray convinces as the 'new girl in town'.
Léa Triboulet, 2016, France/USA, 9’
The brother is gone, but his sisters have to live on. Denial, reminiscence and silence beautifully intertwine while the girls process their loneliness.
