Jiseul

Still image from the film Jiseul
Jiseul is written and directed by Muel O, a representative of the Jeju-based independent culture project, Terror J. Set during the 1948 Jeju Massacre in Korea, Jiseul tells the story of some 120 villagers who hid in a cave for 60 days from soldiers who were under shoot-to-kill orders. The absurdity-of-war theme has been explored in many films, but rarely in such exquisite and intimate detail as in this offering. Striking black-andwhite cinematography captures the texture of the region as well as the humanity of its inhabitants. Winner of the World Cinema Dramatic Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. In Korean language with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)


This semester’s East Asian Film Series line-up features award winning films offering two takes on the struggles of citizens in Japan and South Korea. These films, ranging from fictional drama to documentary, are inspired by and follow the IU Cinema’s fall showing of the A Touch of Sin, awarded “best screenplay” at the Cannes Film Festival, as it portrayed the everyday struggles of Chinese citizens under the pressures of globalization, corruption, and deregulation. This series is sponsored by the IU East Asian Studies Center and the IU Cinema.
