TRIBUTE
TRIBUTE TO HONG SANGSOO
The Festival will honour in his presence South Korean director Hong Sangsoo, whose sensitive and
unsettling films are somewhat reminiscent of Eric Rohmer. His complete works will be shown for the
occasion, in collaboration with the Cinémathèque Française.
HONG SANGSOO
Born on January 25th 1961 in South Korea, Hong Sangsoo attracted a lot of attention in 1996 at the
Rotterdam Film Festival with his first film “The Day a Pig Fell Into the Well”. Since then, he has written and
directed ten feature films which have been shown in many world-renowned festivals like Cannes, Venice
or Berlin. The characters and situations he creates seem at first to originate in improvisation and chance,
but on closer examination, you discover that the director has set up his own coherent and calculated
aesthetics, in complex and detailed fashion. With every film, Hong Sangsoo keeps on nurturing his own
cinematic language and original visual style. He is acknowledged as one of the masters of contemporary
Korean cinema.
