"Forest Dancing" (2013)

Directed by Kang Seok-pil

There is a village in the center of the city. It's not a place one rests in between commutes. It's a place where one can greet everyone in the area while on a casual bike ride. It is Seongmisan village. It has been a dozen years since people began gathering at this village with the simple but impossible dream of an ecological urban existence. But Seongmisan has begun dancing to the beat of capitalism and real estate development. It can be a sorrowful dance that spews out unspoken pain or a dance of harmony that embraces everyone. is the directorial debut of veteran producer Kang Seok-pil and it is an invitation by the Seongmisan resident-better known as MacGyver-into his life. The audience gets to meet the other residents and discover the values they hold dear and that compel them to protect Seongmisan. "Feel free to throw questions at closed-minded conventions but never lose one's sense of humor!" The film, like Seongmisan village, is cheerful and warmhearted and asks the question "Am I Iiving a good life?"

"Bhikkuni - Buddhist Nuns" (2012)

Directed by Lee Chang-jae

Baekheung-am Temple, a bhikkuni (Buddhist nun) temple which opens only twice a year, is famous for its conservatism and principles. Access to this temple is prohibited and so is picture-taking. Although it was difficult to get the permission for shooting, it unlatched the latch by itself after I was officially exiled four times. Monk Sunwoo who lost her parents when she was three years old and grew up in the temple asks herself if this way is what she chose and what it means to her. Monk Sangwook chose to become a Buddhist priest before she became a professor. Her old sick mother constantly visits her to change her mind. Old master of seventy years old, who has trained for 40 years, self-examines her severely asking if she has lived properly.
