Description

Production Company for the films of Korean maverick Lee Sang-woo. Titles include: DEAR DICTATOR, I AM TRASH, DIRTY ROMANCE, SPEED Description LEE SANG-WOO Getting his start as an actor and then as an assistant director for Kim Ki-duk, Lee Sang-woo quickly made his mark with his debut TROPICAL MANILA in 2008. Since then, his dark and often controversial films have earned wide acclaim on the festival circuit, screening in Busan, Hong Kong, Cinemanila, Vancouver, Jeonju and Stockholm, among others. His works FATHER IS A DOG and BARBIE earned him prizes from the Black Movie Film Festival in Geneva and the Giffoni and Gijon International Film Festivals. Frequently exploring taboo themes within dysfunctional family dynamics, Lee's films exhibit a raw style as they dig at the heart of Korean society, but not without humor, empathy and beauty in the most unexpected of places. As a filmmaker, his unfiltered view of his surroundings is refreshing and his passion for the craft unmistakeable.
