The River

  • English 9 mins
  • Director | Heeseon Kim
  • Writer | Heeseon Kim

Inspired by real-life stories from border villages around Demilitarised Zones in Korea, Heeseon Kim’s striking RCA grad film The River serves up an unsettling tale of manipulation and violence in a stark and unforgiving land. Presented in a bold, almost confrontational style, what this nine-minute animation lacks in narrative clarity, it more than makes up for with its powerful filmmaking approach and ambitious, original storytelling.
