Program Note

Baek Jokyoung, a best-selling author, faces being socially stigmatized due to her unfortunate family history and the leaking of malicious illegal filming. On the day of premiere of the film based on her novel, she is kidnapped by unidentified crooks on her way back from a bar. She wakes up in a drum covered in blood but tries to escape by remembering the future, using her author's imagination. 

Director Lee Jungsub's Fallen is a work featuring sci-fi imagination to describe the will of a woman who is socially and conventionally stigmatized through no fault of her own. She tries to call on her time and memories to learn the secrets of survival and escape from her unfortunate past. In this human-made world, AI has the will to live beyond human beings, where memories of the past and future time are mixed. This film features a unique female character and a vision for the future that seeks to save the world beyond the stigma inflicted upon her. (MO Eun-young)
