Arirang (2011): Kim Ki-Duk’s Docu (South Korea)


Kim Ki-Duk, South Korea

While shooting a suicide scene for his last film, Dream, in 2008, filmmaker Kim Ki-Duk‟s lead actress nearly perished and the incident triggered an emotional and creative breakdown for Kim.

As an act of self-administered therapy, Arirang takes playful liberties with the documentary form as Kim traces his experiences and mindset during this period of crisis.
