Next Sohee (다음 소희) – preview & theatrical release

Anyone who saw July Jung’s debut feature A Girl at My Door in 2014 won’t need persuading to watch this, her second movie, which screened at the BFI London Film Festival two years ago. I was out of town at the time, so I’ll make sure to see it this time round.

Highschooler Sohee is required to complete an internship before she can graduate. She is placed in a local call centre with a stressful metric-driven environment so toxic it drives one of her colleagues to suicide. July Jung’s compelling drama exposes the harrowing impacts of capitalism, particularly on the young and disadvantaged.
