2005/09/06 | 178 views | Permalink | Source

A continuation of the human rights omnibus films commissioned by the Korea Human Rights Commission, but this time with six short animated works.

"If you were me (Byeol-byeol iyagi)" is to be release on 23 September.

Directed by six noted animation directors who are Lee Seong-gang (My Beautiful Girl, Mari), Park Jae-dong (the director who was scheduled to work with Jang Sun-woo on the never-produced Princess Bari), Yoo Jin-hee (short A Fine Day), Kwon Oh-seong (Doggy Poo) and Amy Lee, the works have been planned and produced since 2002 to boosts social awareness about abolitionof discrimination.

In that the phrase 'Byeol-byeol' means 'all sorts of' in Korean, the animation deals with discrimination against various kinds such as race, physical trouble or appearance, alien, and academic background. This omnibus film is a compilation of six short films of varying lengths and moods by noted feature filmmakers.

The film first debuted as the opener at the Jeonju International Film Festival in April and has made the rounds at domestic and international film events, most recently screening at last month's Pusan International Film Festival. And it will open in theaters on September 23.

Since 2002, the Korea Human Rights Commission has been producing films, comics, animations and photos to deliver the messages and issue of discrimination.
