After an impressive and eclectic debut with "The Last Dining Table", director NOH Gyeong-tae is hard at work on his sophomore effort, poetically titled "Land of Scarecrows". The new feature, produced by Teddy Bear Films co.,was recently awarded post-production support through the Pusan International Film Festival's Asian Cinema Fund.

"Land of Scarecrows", like NOH's first feature, presents a cross-section of modern society, focusing on isolated lives in a poetically charged squalor. The story revolves around three characters, Jang Ji-young, a transvestite lesbian living in the guise of a 40 year-old man, Loi Tan, an adopted Filipino boy, and Rain, a young woman from the Philippines with a Korean dream. Their lives intertwine bringing them face to face with tragic results.

NOH studied at KAIST and worked at Samsung Securities Company as a stockbroker before turning to film. His experimental short films Father and Son (2005) and Reincarnation (2005), won several awards at festivals worldwide. His feature debut "The Last Dining Table" (2006), was shown at the Locarno, Sundance, Rotterdam and Pusan International Film Festival where it won the NETPAC award and then the CGV Best Film Award at the Seoul Independent Film Festival.
