NYU 전수일 감독 상영회

by admin
한국의 영화감독 전수일 감독님을 초청하여 3일간 (4월 23-25일) 3편의 작품을 학교의 CANTOR CENTER 와 영화과 내의 Michaelson Theatre 에서 상영합니다. 전수일 감독님은 잘 알려진 예술영화작가로서 실험적인 영상과 내러티브를 통해 국내외의 예술영화계에 독보적인 영역을 개척하신 분입니다. 대중적인 영화언어를 사용하지 않으시기에 조금 낮설수도 있지만 KGSA 한국 학생들이 많은 관심을 보여준다면 행사가 더욱 뜻깊지 않을까 싶습니다. 상영은 전체 무료이며 부담없이 오시면 되는 행사이구요. 전수일 감독님 역시 행사 3일간 내내 참석하셔서 관객과의 대화를 가지실 예정입니다.

In a small mining village in the Kangwon Province, a 9-year-old girl Young-lim lives a financially limited but cozy life with her miner father, and her mentally challenged brother. But their happiness is interrupted as her father loses his job after a mining incident. Jeon’s most acclaimed film – it won awards at the Venice, Pusan, Deauville and Barcelona film festivals, among others – is a “quiet wonder” (Neil Young, Hollywood Reporter) that effectively plunges the viewer into its rugged, forlorn setting and the interior world of its young heroine.

Kim teaches at a provincial film school and is no favourite among the students. Different from other professors who help them find contacts and start their film careers, Kim is too focused on film itself and on making his own film, a desire which begins to merge with his longing to fly. Having kept the memories of birds from his childhood, he intends to make a film based on the images of birds that appear in his dreams. He is slowly working on his own screenplay and doesn’t notice that his professional and personal lives are falling apart. Kim’s girlfriend, Young-hie, struggles with her fears about the future and tries to interest her lover in their relationship – to no avail. Yet he agrees to accompany Young-hie on a trip to her hometown, though he is plainly becoming ever more estranged from the human world.
