Kim Kyung-Mook at IFFR
A sensational film. Sensational in its almost rigid form that is only made up of three shots. Also sensational in its detailed presentation of sadomasochistic sex games. The kind of games that can get out of hand. Games with shit too.
A Cheonggyecheon Dog
The historic Cheonggyecheon River in Seoul, for long a kind of open sewer, has been cleaned up at the cost of billions. The maker of the controversial Faceless Things presents a fresh, kitsch second film with a talking dog, pursuits and sex changes.
Intriguing experiment that uses different media to visualise the tension between sexual reality and sensual fantasy.Screened before Reincarnate.
Claustrophobic drama about two stateless boys struggling with life. Although they couldn’t be more different, they are linked by their loneliness and desperation. A meeting proves inevitable. Poetic film about homosexuality and illegal migrants in South Korea - major themes in Kim’s oeuvre.
