Virgin Forest (Wonsirim)

A clash of views on the past.

The filmmaker and her brother visit the home of their recently deceased maternal grandmother. They revive memories of the past, while dealing with the clash between their own very different personalities and between their different views on life, death and the family history. An alluring and thoughtful mixture of documentary and fiction. Screening with two short films from Korea, Homo Coreanicus (Yang Ik-je) and Day Trip (Park Chan-wook and Park Chan-kyung).
