SONG Il-gon portrays Koreans in swinging Cuba

International film festival favorite Song Il-gon returns with another small scale film. This time he tries his hand at documentary making. "Dance of Tiime" features Koreans whose parents left for Cuba in the Joseon era.

They always dreamed of returning to Korean soil, but none of them ever fulfilled that desire. SONG interviews the Korean-Cubans whose Cuban side is partly reflected in their passion for Latin dances. The documentary will be released on 3 December.

SONG is far from a commercial director and his projects struggle to get financed. He is widely recognised for his artistic and experimental qualities. His latest film "The Magicians" dates from 2005. He also directed "Spider Forest", "Feathers in the Wind" and "Flower Island".
