PROGRAM NOTE
A Korean in New York makes friends with Annie. Annie, who laughs, sings, talks a lot, gladly sharing and who is HIV-positive and has Hepatitis C. Annie was an abused child who was raped, abused drugs, was involved in prostitution and robbery and finally imprisoned. Seeing Annie embracing her past offers the viewer the strength to stand up and get out of life’s swamp. The film is a documentary on Annie, as well as the relationship of his film dealing with Kim Hyun-kyung and Annie. In as first-person diary format, the film mirrors everyday occurrences in impromptu and intuitive ways. In Special Annie, the camera is the director herself, and a medium for a relationship. Sometimes the camera becomes a device to represent the director’s desires and frustrations, and the film absorbs personal life and social issues. The calm confessional narration makes the various social issues naturally blend, making the viewer wonder about the director as much as Annie. (LEE Seung-min)
