Director: Baek Seung-bin
“Heralds a dark wit and sleek intelligence guided by a creatively secure humility.” - Variety
Death, family and literature all come to the forefront but not necessarily in that order, as three seemingly unrelated guests at a funeral reveal their hidden relationships with the deceased and with each other. An inventive reflection on life, death, coincidence and fate.
Creative, intelligent and overflowing with literary references, Members of the Funeral drew special praise from the jury at last year's Pusan film festival for its wonderfully drawn characters and imaginative experimentation.
This sometimes dark, often humorous film is the debut feature from director Baek Seung-bin, who here proves himself as a new talent in Korean cinema.
