Asian Premiere

Unfolding in several original yet oddly familiar stages, this film’s imaginary ritual shows an almost fetishistic attention to detail in design elements like costumes and props, and its entrancing choreography will keep you guessing as to its endgame. While ‘placebo’ suggests role-play and make-believe, Park Minkyung’s film delves into suicide, social structure, tradition and resurrection.

Director

  • Park Minkyung

    Céline Minkyung Park is a Korean designer/film maker who was raised and educated in France, Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. She is currently living and working in Seoul, South Korea after achieving her MA degree at Royal College of Art in the design interactions programme. Throughout her previous years as a designer, She has used multiple methodologies. She obtained a graphic design, film, photography, and fine art background. And therefore, She drew on these experiences to suit the specific subjects in her work. She interrogates perceptions of cultural and social constructs that exist in society. In most circumstances, She creates speculative scenarios around social hierarchy to explore individual experiences that people go through. The scenarios that she creates are usually polarised dystopian or utopian ones and can sit in the future, the past as a counterfactual scenario or the present. An underlying objective of her projects is to remind people that culture can unconsciously manipulate us and that it is always important to look through all the layers of a subject.≪The Object Right≫ (2018)≪Placebo Funeral≫ (2016)​
