Kim Ki-duk -
The first extensive monograph dedicated to the Korean director: moving on the edge for thirty years, Kim Ki-duk physically explored the forthcoming themes of his work as a director – wandering, escape and, especially, survival.
Also available in English edition.
Kim Ki-duk (born 1960, in Bonghwa, South Korea) is today counted among the most prominent directors of the new movement of contemporary cinema while at the same time resolutely remaining outside the cinema industry. From his very first films, he has been noticed at international film festivals such as Berlin (Golden Bear for best director, for Samaritan Girl), Locarno (Coast Guard) or Venice (Silver Lion for 3-Iron). In spite of a growing success (An award at 2011 Cannes Festival for Arirang, Golden Lion in 2012 for Pietà) Kim Ki-duk favours independence in his way of working: small budget, fast shooting and strong personal implications which lead him to create his own film sets and accessories.
