Type of Event: Film


One Fine Day (2012), written & directed by Ingeun Kim is a 29'37" long film depicting the daily life of a London based Korean artist. The film introduces Ilsu, whose everyday routines are illuminated via both compatible and confronting interactions he has with other people. Ingeun Kim, the director of the film, is himself a practicing artist in London and had his friends and acquaintances involved in the film, with whom his real life relationships were the source and inspiration for his characters in the film. His initial impulse to make video sketches of his friends at dinner parties may have been on the spur of the moment but it eventually bred and developed into a more genuine interest in filmmaking. With this film, he speaks about internal frustrations, emotional conflicts and absurdity within and among artists.
