Program note

Director KIM Kiyoung’s unconventional film format relies heavily on collaboration with DP JUNG Il-sung. Woman on Fire (1971) was the beginning. A housemade Myeongja (YOON Yeojeong) and the master of the house Dongsik (NAMGUNG Won) are murdered, and the movie reveals the full story of the incident with flashbacks. Myeongja falls into a trap-like love triangle with the master couple, and the house turns into a grotesque closet full of serial murders. Strong, dark red lights dominate inside the house, and beyond translucent windows and vinyl tents, a groan is emitted and a distorted face is glimmering. DP JUNG Il-sung uses thorough calculations to control the light and divide the space into segments obsessively rather than showing the whole space, thereby increasing the intensity of the ominous energy to the fullness. (JEONG Jihye)
