Jury Comment
Monstrous production of the year. a Wild Roomer, which betrays all expectations and imagination, is perhaps the most atypical film amongst all films that were showcased by the new directors in Busan this year. Capturing the irony of life, created by the inexplicable coincidences and strange encounters, with its characteristically unique sense of rhythm, this film is deserving of suggesting a new blueprint for the potential of Korean independent films, as well as announcing the birth of a new director who is worthy of international recognition.
