Program Note

In the deep mountain area in Gangwon Province, people flock to an abandoned church famous for its ghosts. The producers of TV programs, shamans and a mystery experience group have one common purpose: to prove that ghosts exist! The situation takes an unexpected turn when mysterious people begin to appear before those who have come to experience just such bizarre occurrences in this spooky church full of extraordinary energy.

Director Jung Hayong's debut feature film, Possessed, explores conflict between people trying to reveal the true nature of ghosts, and the mysterious ghostlike people they see. They all gather for different reasons without knowing each other at all, but the ghosts know why those people are there, and whether the strange energy that those who spend the night there experienced is real or not. Throughout this film, we are presented with human nature, which amid various surprise developments is scarier than the ghosts themselves. (MO Eun-young)
