for desistfilm: Blue Un-Sok Kim The city of Gyeongju holds a special place in the collective psyche of the Korean people. As the former capital of the ancient Korean kingdom of Silla, the city is referred to as a “museum without walls”. Unlike most historical treasures of Korea that faced destruction during its turbulent history,…

JIFF 2012 CORRISPONDENZA – Ankor Wat di Park Sang-hun (ITA)

per desistfilm: Narda Liotine Il pellegrinaggio presso le rovine di un santuario buddhista non sembra essere una buona idea se nel percorso si fa crollare un monticello di sassolini la cui solidità porterebbe buona sorte. Con questo momento di comicità si apre una storia dalla natura in verità tragica. Si arguisce subito come le interazioni…

THE ARRIVAL

JIFF 2012 CORRISPONDENZA – The arrival di Sin Yiee-soo (ITA)

per desistfilm: Narda Liotine Una sequenza di scene apparentemente giustapposte: la cucina di un ristorante, un karaoke, una povera camera d’affitto. Il nostro punto di vista, quello dello spettatore è dell’ignoranza, osservando  gli eventi senza conoscerne il nesso, mentre si susseguono uno dopo l’altro. Love will tear us apart. L’amore ci dividerà. Più probabilmente la…

JIFF 2012 COVERAGE – Tree or Wood by Lee Eun-Joo

for desistfilm: Catherine Jessica Beed Lee Eun-Joo‘s short is a curious attempt to arrange a dichotomy between the transient beauty of nature in all its abstractions and the artificiality of manufactured objects. As a brief dialogue between the lateral abstract images of wood and foliage and the composition of sound, close-up controlled shots of trees…

JIFF 2012 COVERAGE – INTERFERE (JEON JUNE-HYUCK)

for desistfilm: Narda Liotine To say cinema is a matter of movement tout court is something I personally don’t agree with: To experience film format as a big canvas should imply that one is able to explore every single fragment of a reel and contemplate their unique beauty.  Since Joris Ivens’ the notion of individualization…

JIFF 2012 CORRISPONDENZA – INTERFERE (Jeon June-Hyuck) ITA

per desistfilm: Narda Liotine Non credo che il cinema sia una questione di movimento tout court. Se si guarda ad esso come ad una tela di grandi dimensioni si può distinguere ogni singolo frammento di cui è composta e contemplare la bellezza piena di ognuno di essi. Per qualche ragione il movimento dell’acqua mette in…
