With a Girl of Black Soil
Yu Yunmi, Jo Yungjin, Hyunwoo Park, Kang Sooyoun, Yim Jintaik, Yoo Soonchul / Fiction / korean
A South Korean drama infused with the honesty of NeoRealism and Truffaut’s humanism.
The short film Household Gods will be screened with all the showings of With a Girl of Black Soil.
While nine year old Yeonglim minds her mentally handicapped brother, her exminer father struggles to cope with the loss of his job, and a lack of compensation. Setting Truffaut’s respect for a child’s interiority within the landscapes and silences of South Korea’s economically dispossessed, Sooil’s film stands as a startlingly poetic exfoliation of South Korea’s perceived prosperity. A formal beauty as crisp as onyx in Inchon’s sunlight.
