GEORGIA

Directed by Jayil Pak

Produced by Boram Kang

Republic of Korea | Korean | 30' | Fiction

When the police refuse to investigate their daughter’s alleged suicide, two computer-illiterate parents decide to design a protest banner. Based on the infamous Miryang case in South Korea which shocked the nation in 2004 and continues to fuel public outrage even today.

Jayil Pak has created a quietly beautiful film. An emotional roller coaster that is based on a true story. Watching two parents navigate their grief through unimaginable circumstances is often a reason to turn away but Georgia is the exception. You can’t take your eyes away from the screen as each moment is soaked in our own humanity. There is no cure for this kind of pain but if you wait for the ending you might be graced with a moment of relief. — Elle Shaw, Festival Director
