KIM Seong-hun

Beginning with its enthusiastic reception in the Director’s Fortnight section of the 67th Cannes Film Festival, KIM Seong-hun’s previous film A HARD DAY (2014) garnered accolades around the world and established its director as a remarkable talent who stands tall among his peers. KIM’s sharp insight into everyday reality and his great directorial skills are now channeled into his new feature TUNNEL, which tears down the conventions of the disaster movie genre. Through a disaster which seems lifted from ordinary reality, the film reminds us all of the forgotten dignity of human life.
