"In Search of My Father" (2018)

Directed by Kim Moo-eun

In a different generation that holds similarities to this one, our fathers who had dreams and hopes beyond the poverty began their youths suffering from unemployment and struggling to earn money. However, they say those times were like Utopia. They even say they are sorry for not being able to present youths today with the same experiences. They were known as 'work animals' because all they did was work, but they proudly say did that to feel accomplished at the end of the day. It was a world where the working environment was decent. However, once the jobs that they spent their whole youths on disappeared, they reminisced over them in silence. They are trying to return the favor to their families now. This documentary is the confession from our fathers who devoted everything to work.

"Eyelids" (2015)

Directed by O Muel

With Moon Seok-beom, Seong Min-cheol, Kang Hee-I, Lee Sang-hee, Lee Ji-hoon-III,...

An old man living on the island of Mireukdo lives a self-sufficient life, adhering to ascetic principles typical of a monk. Now and then the phone rings and shortly thereafter a visitor arrives; the old man dutifully prepares rice cakes for them. The cakes are the last meal these visitors will eat before embarking on the seemingly long journey to the next world. The first to arrive is an angler, then a rat, and the last a teacher and two students. Despite so few characters, the film manages to impart a mystifying ambience by capturing stirring views of the sea, forests, insects, goats, and other similar imagery. In "Eyelids", Mireukdo occupies a strange time and space; it is neither of this world nor the next. Instead, it serves as a final calm and heartrending place of solace for those whose lives were unfairly taken. This is not director O Muel's first foray into such a realm. In 2012 he made the award-winning "Jiseul", which similarly depicted a great in-between for souls. (NAM Dong-chul)
