The 37th Busan International Short Film Festival presents three opening films—one from this year’s Guest Country Belgium, one noteworthy Asian film, and one from Korea which was selected as 2020 BISFF Short Film Project.
The first film, The Golden Legend in the “Belgium Panorama” program, comes from this year’s Guest Country Belgium. The film offers oddly pe- culiar images that dominate the mind of a psychiatric patient as if they are museum displays.
Coming from India, the second film is Tungrus, presented in the “Curtain Call” program. Both hilarious and entertaining while also detailing a very unique case of home invasion and emotional abuse.
The third film is ID Card, a Korean film selected as “2020 BISFF Short Film Project”. The film is about the existential crisis that an individual has to go through at work. Calmly contemplating today’s Korea, it shows how mutual understanding and solidarity among people disappear under the capitalistic system.
