Director: Roh Gyeong-tae
“Human life is like Pandora's Box, too ambiguous and magical to measure.” - filmmaker Roh Gyeong-tae
Within the decaying landscape of an industrialised South Korean city, three lost souls wrestle with questions of identity and meaning in Roh Gyeong-tae's follow up to his praised debut feature, The Last Dining Table.
An amateur sculptress living as a man; a Filipino bride looking for happiness in a foreign land; a struggling dishwasher searching for his biological parents. Their fates intertwine as they all seek to heal the deep emotional wounds they carry.
Honoured with the New Currents Award at last year's Pusan film festival, Land of Scarecrows is visually stunning; a haunting portrait of ethereal lives in a desolate urban landscape.
