25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Transparent Landscape: South Korea
100 years of South Korean documentary.
While South Korean fiction film is at its height and receiving praise around the world, the country’s documentary landscape has to a big extent remained unexplored. We have therefore taken the challenge to map the history of South Korean documentary cinema. The result is a section Transparent Country: South Korea, which presents a unique overview of both documentary films that reflect the country’s social and political development as well as unique experimental works that embody the freedom of artistic expression.
The section was supported by the Korean Film Council.
