Issue 2: SCARS AND DEATH
Yoo Un-Seong & John Torres
Issue 2 is dedicated to Scars and Death. We asked writers, filmmakers, scholars, bloggers, and artists from Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, the USA, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, India, and Kazakhstan to pitch in without feeling the need to conform to a particular form or tone of writing. Write about scars and death. Die for the piece and swear by it. For the scarred workers, the dedicated, the desperate enough, for those dying to be offered another chance. For the films we have lost, the scenes that are scarred by time, those missing frames, abrupt endings and low resolutions. For the ones who died on- and off-screen, for deaths we haven’t seen. For those who risk life savings for a fictional piece. For all others who toil away, INT/EXT, their bodies taking it, DAY/NIGHT.
Yoo Un-Seong is a film critic, co-publisher of OKULO (a quarterly magazine on cinema and the moving image), and Lecturer at the Korea National University of Arts (K’ARTS). He worked as a programmer of the Jeonju International Film Festival from 2004 to 2012.
