Boys of Tomorrow Competes in Germany

2008/01/03 | 442 views | Permalink | Source

Asia Hot Shots Berlin, a festival for film and video art, has selected Noh Dong-seok 's "Boys of Tomorrow" to screen in its competition section. The inaugural festival takes place January 16 22 at the festival cinemas, babylon berlin:mitte and Z-Bar.

Director NOH's sophomore feature is about two boys on the outskirts of town who believe that their life is elsewhere but they have no means to pursue their dreams. NOH twists several conventions of the gangster genre in a unique way and derives extreme tension and pace through his minimalist style.

"Boys of Tomorrow" screened in competition last year at the Locarno International Film Festival. NOH's debut feature "My Generation" (2004), was shown in the competition of the Pusan International Film Festival as well as at renowned international films festivals such as Rotterdam, Jeonju, Hong Kong and Singapore. The director is a graduate of the Korean Academy of Film Arts.
