Hail to Hell

JUNG Grim Korea

Jury Comment
Hail to Hell uses a unique out-of-focus filming technique that suggests that Na-mi and Sun-woo are left alone in the world, but in the final scenes of the film, it is expressed that the two characters will eventually become each other’s will to live in the lonely and difficult world. This film’s camera uses such image to create cinematic moments that naturally leads the audience along throughout the two characters’ journey.
