GYEONGJU (경주) 2014

Directed by Zhang Lu
Cast: Park Hae-Il, Shin Min-A, Yoon Jin-Seo, Kim Tae-Hoon, Shin So-Yul, Baek Hyun-Jin, Ryoo Seung-Wan

An "existential ghost story" (Variety) and a poetic, sentimental journey in the vein of Hong Sang-soo's best films, Zhang Lu's new film follows the wanderings of Peking University professor Choi-Hyun (WAR OF ARROWS' Park Hae-Il) as he returns to the city of Gyeongju to attend a friend's funeral. Spurred by the memory of an obscene picture he saw seven years ago on the wall of a teahouse, he proceeds to go on a strangely aimless quest, fumbling between tantalizing possibilities of erotic satisfaction or perhaps something of a more spiritual nature.
