The Short Films of Hayoun Kwon

  • In Person

Much of Hayoun Kwon’s innovative film work is documentary and political, grounded in personal stories—particularly, in Kwon’s words, “the moment when reality seemed to tip over into fiction.” Her Model Village and the animations Panmunjom and 489 Years use very different styles to focus on the Korean DMZ, with 489 Years based on memories of a South Korean soldier. The animation Lack of Evidence draws on the testimony of a Nigerian man who sought asylum in France. Kwon’s most recent film, commissioned for BAMPFA’s On the Hour series on the outdoor screen, draws us into the true story of a mysterious woman who collected birds in her Paris apartment.
