FILMS OF THE SINGAPORE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS' THE O.P.E.N.

Nineteen films will be shown, most of them making their theatrical debut in Singapore.

Among them is Non-fiction Diary (2013, 90 minutes, PG13), screening on Monday at 7.30pm.

This stylised documentary by Yoon-suk Jung draws a line from the 1980s economic boom in South Korea to the rise of a serial-killing cult that targeted the rich, and to the shoddy construction work done by firms owned by tycoons that resulted in the collapse of a department store and a bridge. Passionate and highly subjective, Jung's work can be enjoyed as a narrative about contemporary South Korea and as a work of art that dares break out of the linear story-telling style found in non-fiction film.
