The Wall (벽)

벽 (byeok)

Directed by Lim Il-jin (임일진)

Screenplay by

Documentary

79min | Release date in South Korea :

Synopsis
The only sounds you can hear on the rugged Canadian bigwall, 'Bugaboo' are the heavy breathing of climbers who risk their lives climbing and the bleak wind. Loneliness and yearning grow as the ascent proceed. It's their greatest desire to climb the wall, but it's an almost impossible reality to overcome. This is a film which fully reveals the filmmaker's self-reflective dilemma. Humans seem too small as they attempt to climb up the snow-covered great rocky mountain. And the climbers' deep confusion and loneliness as they shift between reality and the world of climbing are delicately presented to reveal a strong will to climb to the top. Winner of the 2008 Trento Film Festival, Jury Special Prize Award. (Billy CHOI)

Let us see what "The Wall" is about, though,...More
