PROGRAM NOTE
Since [Tropical Manila], director Lee Sangwoo has picked up his pace in making films. Besides [Mother is a Whore], Lee has finished two films a year and has grown to be an important figure in the independent film scene. While [Mother is a Whore] tenaciously deals with the collapsing relationship of a family through a mother, [Father Is a Dog] describes the relationship of a father and his unknown sons. With full of allegoric devices, Lee셲 films often unfold his unique and violent scenes. Through the scenes, Lee strives to seek the truth on how cinema reflects the world and also how it functions as a window to the world. When watching his films, his career as an assistant director to Kim Ki-duk stands out. However, in comparing him to Kim Ki-duk, Lee forms frames in a different way and deals with relationships more mechanically. Like a game of the father, the world in Lee셲 films must be a stage setting with immense gears. (LEE Sang-yong)
