Program Note
After a decade of false starts and failed projects, film director Si-won (Park Jong-hwan) is about to make a mountain movie. However, the film faces another setback, and then the director’s pet cat Luca dies. In the depths of despair and pain, Si-won embarks on a journey deep into the mountains to bury Luca. At this juncture, the movie takes an unexpected turn, leading to a bizarre mountain trek. During this journey, Si-won confronts the painful creative seed within him that he wishes to escape and give up on, but finds difficult to let go. At the End of the Film delves into the existence of a human being caught in the midst of an unending creative process, navigating the delicate boundary between cinema and reality, fiction and nonfiction, and the struggle to begin anew. Notably, the spontaneous emergence of free dancing and rhythmic beats at unexpected moments infuses the film with an aura of freedom and liberation. Could this be the reason? Ahn Sunkyoung’s film, born from the journey of ordeal, appears freer than ever. (JEONG Jihye)
