Traumatised after one of his actresses nearly died during the shooting of his 2008 film Dream, art-house director Kim Ki-duk withdrew from filmmaking for three years. With Arirang he finally re-emerges – but this time he turns the lens on himself, constructing a fascinating, self-made reflection on his own approach to art. Using a handheld camera to chronicle his time holed up in a country retreat, Kim reflects on his life, art and choices, creating a compelling, tantalising glimpse into the mind of an obsessive filmmaker. Winner of the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes in 2011 and winner of Australia’s biggest documentary prize, BIFFDOCS in 2011.
