Park Jung-bum (The Journals of Musan and Alive), one time Assistant Director for Lee Chang-dong, returns to the festival fresh from winning the Special Jury prize at Locarno for this complex, multifaceted, emotionally astute thriller about greed and corruption in a small town. Eschewing typical genre trappings, and all the more powerful for it, this slow burning character study creeps up behind its audience and takes us deep into the rotting hearts of its troubled characters.

This screening will be introduced by Simon Ward. Simon Ward is former film programmer at Institute of Contemporary Arts and co-founder of the Independent Cinema Office
