'The 2005 Jeonju International Film Festival' to screen a total of 20 Korean short-length films

2005/02/05 Source

A total of 380 Korean short-length films applied their screening at 'The 2005 Jeonju International Film Festival', which will be held from April 28 through May. 6.

The organizing committee of the Film Festival plans to screen by selecting a total of 20 films among these 380 films in 'Korean short-length's selection: critic week' section. 'Korean short-length's selection: critic week' has been gaining a number of popularity as it began as a form of non-competition from late 2002.

On one hand, the opening film of the 5th Jeonju International Film Festival by director Min Byeong-kook is his first feature debut film that feels like a monologue about one entity divided into many personas, much like how a dealt subject often gets excluded from the screen.

Everyday life began from somewhere far off dispersing itself like the poisonous elements in the air, settling inside the characters, and the characters stand below the sky, above the sea and by the cliff.

We have seen many such characters suffering in the face of common hopelessness in numerous films, and it can even start to feel too banal.

But this wall of despair is of great power that can shape the portraits of many people, and this film silently directs our attention to the divided course of action taken by one character which seem to attempt minor changes in the unchanging everyday lives.
