Missing Person will be the next film in the Korean Cultural Service's Korean Movie Night Series 3: The Hidden Gems of Korean Cinema. This series focuses on outstanding, recent indie films from the peninsula.
Winner of “Best Film” at the Jeonju Film Festival and the “Artistic Achievement Award” at Greece’s Thessaloniki Film Festival, MISSING PERSON will mess you up. A real estate agent takes out the frustrations of his job and life by regularly tormenting a mentally ill kid in his basement. As violence trickles down from the upper levels of society to the lower, the entire city begins to simmer and boil over with fear, hate and mistrust in this shocking dissection of modern society, leavened with pitch black comedy.
