Original/alternative title: 물안에서 mul-an-e-seo
Director: Hong Sang-soo
Runtime: 61 min
Country: South Korea
On a trip to Jeju Island, an actor-turned-aspiring-director and his two friends ponder the film they are about to shoot. Against the sunlit stone walls and rocky contours of Jeju Island, South Korean director Hong Sang-soo’s in water lingers on the submerged textures of everyday existence—rushing winds, lapping waves, undisclosed longings, half-forgotten memories. Shot almost entirely out of focus save for a few shadowy interior scenes, the film premiered in the Berlinale 2023 to glowing reviews. With exquisitely composed vignettes of the coast, Hong conjures an Impressionist tableaux of the tangled relationships between art and life.
