Added the upcoming Korean documentary "Talking Architect"'s page to HanCinema database

"Talking Architect" (2011)

Directed by Jeong Jae-eun

Chung Guyon is a second-generation upcoming Korean modern architecture. By implementing the Miracle Library Project for children in six major metropolitan cities nationwide for instance, he confronts and fights society, displaying his indefatigable will to build a better one through architecture. While following the steps he and his pupils take to prepare an exhibition at Ilmin Museum of Art, "Talking Architect" portrays the intersecting paths between architecture and society, architecture and life, and architecture and architecture. The show could be his last following cancer surgery, but Chung still makes an earnest attempt at another cultura'l revolution': unveiling a place for architectural communication, not simply to set up an exhibition that deals with architecture to be looked at by visitors. The effort is tri-fold: to trace his life, the revelation of his architectural philosophy, and to consider the process of picturing the aspects of a human being facing death. This documentary is as complex as Chung's exhibition and career. In fact Talking Architect evokes sympathy and response in a very retrospective fashion. (LEE Seungmin)

Release date in Korea : 2012/03/08
