Program Note

A pig buried alive in a pit due to a deadly epidemic and a soldier who suffered constant violence from his superiors run away to the mountains. In the place where the half-human pig and the half-animal human are hiding, there are a herd of starving wild boars desperately looking for a way to survive, and a frustrated human looking for a place to end his own life hanging from every tree branch. Following the powerful opening scene that denounces the merciless violence caused by humans, what the audience faces is a repetition of bottomless despair and angry cries. The forest, which looks beautiful at first glance when warm light shines on it, seems to be a refuge for beings that are neither fully human nor animal, and at the same time a trap that cannot be escaped. In HUR Bum-wook's cruel world, the pig's wish to become a perfect human is futile. Amidst the bloodshed on mutilated bodies and the push towards psychological extremes, there are rare moments of relief. Whether human or beast, there is still a glimmer of hope. (LEE Kyunghwa)
