Sorrow of Superman, The (from KAFA collection 2004)

South Korea (MIFF 2005, animation)

Director: Jeong In-Ok

Jeung In-Ok, from the Korean Academy of Film Arts, superbly animates the story of an unpopular Superman. Crouched over on a rooftop washing his red underpants, he waits for a sign of adoration from those who have all but forgotten him.
