‘Ryeohaeng’ means ‘journey’ in North Korean dialect. A group of women climbs a summer mountain situated in South Korea. They are refugees who have settled in the South Korean society after fleeing from North Korea. For them, climbing the mountains has been an unavoidable journey for survival.
IM Heung-soon is an artist and filmmaker based in Seoul. Since his early works on his working-class family, he has explored the lives of those who are marginalized in social, political, capitalist, and national contexts. His political yet emotional works are embodied through different visual media such as photography, installations, cinema, public art and community art.
In Korea, mountains have been seen as the source of nation’s spirit, yet remain terrifying places for what was hidden and buried within during Korean War. The illusions of North and South Korea are unveiled, looking straight to the illusions of moving images.”
Ryeohaeng screens with Enna Kim’s ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL IS MY EX-BOYFRIEND, Samuel Kiehoo Lee’s LAST BREATHS and Christina Daeun Paik’s QUILTS.
Tickets for this screening are $12 and are available online.
Festival passes are available online for $80.
