This coming Friday’s evening seminar at SOAS takes the form of a short film screening followed by Q&A. Well worth the time.

‘One Fine Day (2012)’ is a short film depicting the daily life of a London based Korean artist. The film introduces Ilsu Hwang, whose everyday routines are illuminated via both compatible and confronting interactions he has with other people. Ingeun Kim, the film’s director, is himself a practicing artist in London and had his friends and acquaintances involved in the film, with whom his real life relationships were the source and inspiration for his characters in the film. His initial impulse to make video sketches of his friends at dinner parties may have been on the spur of the moment but it eventually bred and developed into a more genuine interest in filmmaking. With this film, he speaks about internal frustrations and emotional conflicts within and among Korean artists.
