With director Shin Su-won in person
Dir. Shin Su-won. 2015, 121 mins. DCP. New York premiere. With Seo Young-hee, Kwon So-hyun, Kim Young-min. After her festival hit Pluto (2012), a critically acclaimed high-school drama about bullying and murder which won a Special Mention at the 2013 Berlinale, director Shin Su-won delivers a shocking, noir-tinged tale of privilege and poverty: a nurse’s aide uncovers and tries to prevent the horrific use of a brain dead pregnant street-walker for a heart transplant to a rich patient.
Director Shin Su-Won was a middle school teacher before she began a directing career. Her short Circle Line won the Canal+ Prize for Best Short Film at Cannes 2012, and her debut feature Passerby #3 (2010) won awards at the Tokyo International Film Festival and Jeonju International Film Festival. Her films include Modern Family (2012) and Pluto (2013).
