Innovative Films and Daring Filmmakers

The only thing constant about film is that it is always changing. These innovative films and daring filmmakers continually push the boundaries of storytelling through technology and technique. Shifting narratives collide in Kim Kyung-mook’s Stateless Things (Nov 7), while music, song and dance come together in Centrepiece Presentation Prison Dancer (Nov 9). Get immersed in a world of leisure through the gliding camera of Libbie Cohn and JP Sniadecki’s People’s Park (Nov 9), or mesmerizied by Park Hong-min’s spiritual 3D film A Fish (Nov 10).
