THE MAN WHO PAINTS WATER DROPS
US PREMIERE An exquisite and piercing essay film about the director’s father, one of the most recognized Korean artists of his generation. Kim Tschang-Yeul’s fascinations and brilliant obstinacy become a fertile landscape to explore the relationship between a father and a son while reflecting on their differences in culture, age, and temperament. Following the traces left by trauma in the representation of water drops, the film also guides us through the artistic process of a masterful creator. – Ruth Somalo
