HONG SANGSOO - BIOGRAPHY

Hong Sangsoo was born in 1960 in Seoul, and studied filmmaking at Chungang University before receiving a BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts and an MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago. He made an astounding debut with his first feature film THE DAY A PIG FELL INTO THE WELL in 1996. Since then, through the 12 films he has written and directed, Hong has consistently enjoyed exploring the complex architecture beneath his character's seemingly random lives. Renowned for his unique cinematographic language and aesthetics in filmmaking, Hong Sangsoo is one of the most established auteurs in contemporary Korean cinema.
