It’s a Beautiful Day
Korean international student A-Joong takes part in a camp at a country village, located in the suburbs of Los Angeles. A-Joong isn’t happy with the Japanese international students who seem to be addicted to alcohol, drugs or sex. At that time, some brothers, who make a living through murders and burglary, target the cottage where the international students stay.
Hide and Seek
A girl visits a house to take a Koto lesson. She sees a teacher and her son, they play ‘HIDE and SEEK’. As Kotos lesson starts, the teacher’s behaviour becomes odd.
The festival is also having retrospective screenings of Sion Sono’s “Suicide Club” and The Pang Brothers “Gwai Wik / ReCycle”.
