After the live talk, audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions in a Q&A.
Voice of Silence
Sometimes good people do bad things. Chang-bok (Yoo Jae-myung) and Tae-in (Yoo Ah-in) run a humble business selling eggs. The bulk of their income comes from providing spotless crime scene clean-up services to the criminal fraternity. Then, they are asked to babysit a kidnap victim just until the ransom is paid. They reluctantly agree and Tae-in is left to care for Cho-hee (Moon Seung-ah), a bright, capable 11-year-old girl who is soon re-arranging his world. A beautifully shot, bittersweet crime caper with an award-winning performance from Burning’s Yoo Ah-in.
After studying film at London Film School, director Hong Eui-jung attracted international attention with her sci-fi short Habitat. The film had its World Premiere at Busan Film Festival 2018. Eui-jung went on to direct the award-winning Voice of Silence, selected for Venice Film Festival's Biennale College at the screenplay stage. Voice of Silence stars Burning’s Yoo Ah-in, and was the number 1 film in Korea on the weekend of its release. It has gone on to play in numerous international festivals, including Glasgow International Film Festival in the UK.
