Kwang-ju Son

Characters Revisited

Doc. expérimental | 4k | couleur | 18:14 | Coree du Sud | 2016

The filmmaker begins to view CHARACTERS, her first feature film made in 2011, not from the outside as a product to be consumed, but from the inside, as an engaged performance of consciousness in and through which the story is both lost and regained in the actual process of filmmaking itself. Exploring the paradoxical boundary between two worlds, she focuses on the basic conditions of existence, identity and survival of an individual in a fictional world.

Since 2003 when she received the M.F.A. in Film/Video/New Media from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Kwang-Ju Son(b.1970) has presented her varied short projects of both film and video, at diverse venues & international film festivals.
