Busan International Film Festival announced their 2017 programme and we are excited that The Work and Mountain will be making their asian premieres at the prestigious festival. The festival runs from the 12th to the 21st of October in Busan, South Korea.
The Work premiered at SXSW in early 2017 and took home the Grand Jury Prize for best documentary. It has been a hit at festivals including taking home the audience award at Sheffield Doc/Fest! The Work follows three men during four days of intensive group therapy with serving convicts inside of Folsom Prison, revealing an intimate and powerful portrait of authentic human transformation that transcends what we think of as rehabilitation.
From the director of the BAFTA-nominated Sherpa and narrated by Willem Dafoe, Mountain explores the nature of our modern fascination with mountains in collaboration with one of the greatest chamber orchestras in the world. The film held its world premiere at Sydney Film Festival and the international premiere is set for London Film Festival at the BFI Imax.
