Jool-tak-dong-si (Stateless Things) 2012 (118 min, T1)

Jool-tak-dong-si (Stateless Things) 2012 (118 min, T1)

Written and directed by Kim Kyung-mook. With Paul Lee, Yeom Hyun-jun, Kim Sae-byeok, Lim Hyung-kook. The “stateless things” in the title of documentarian Kim’s first narrative feature are three marginalized young people in Seoul: a teenage North Korean defector and a Chinese Korean girl who occasionally do odd jobs together, and a gay hustler who, for a while anyway, has a lovely apartment and a sugar daddy. At once harsh and dreamy, the film treats its dispossessed characters with a hopeful empathy, bringing them together in a fresh and provocative manner. In Korean; English subtitles. 118 min.
