Black Movie Film Festival Closes 15th Edition
 

The Black Movie International Independent Film Festival closed the doors to its 15th edition, which featured an eclectic cross section of Korean cinema, on January 26th. Among the Korean films on display this year in Geneva were five current features, a classic title and four mid-length films.
 
The four mid-length films and one of the features originated from last year’s Jeonju International Film Festival (JIFF). KOBAYASHI Masahiro’s Strangers When We Meet and Edwin’s Someone’s Wife in the Boat of Someone’s Husband were part of last year’s ‘Jeonju Digital Project,’ while ZHANG Lu’s Scenery was the feature-length version of Over There, the third part of the Jeonju project. The feature version premiered at the Busan International Film Festival last October. Meanwhile LEE Sang-woo’s Exit and The Body by brothers PARK Jin-sung and PARK Jin-suk, where two of the three segments of the ‘Short! Short! Short!’ project during last year’s JIFF. LEE Sang-woo previously visited Black Movie in 2011 when his feature Father Is a Dog (2010) earned the audience award.
 
Both of HONG Sangsoo’s 2013 offerings, Nobody’s Daughter Haewon and Our Sunhi, which debuted at the Berlin and Locarno International Film Festivals respectively, screened in Geneva. The remaining features were JANG Kun-jae’s popular sophomore feature Sleepless Night (2012), which previously screened in Switzerland in the Fribourg International Film Festival’s Main Competition, LEE Don-ku’s Fatal, a debut from 2012’s Busan Film Festival, and a retrospective screening of Bong Joon Ho’s now classic thriller Memories of Murder (2003)
 
The Black Movie International Independent Film Festival ran from January 17th to 26th.
