Big Sleep

KIM Taehoon Korea

Jury Comment
A touching portrayal of interaction and coexistence between a man, who is rough but has a warm heart, and a lonely runaway boy. The two actors, who showed both sturdy and delicate acting, and the thoughtful directorial that embraces the weary souls, leaves a strong impression.

Star of Ulsan

Jury Comment
The film looks into the life of the protagonist, who has been working in a shipyard for a long time after losing their husband, and the background into the life that their family is subjected to. The detailed and realistic portrayal of the characters, who are struggling to survive in the complicated and difficult reality, is memorable.
