Previously at the ICA - Films
13 Sep 2008
The latest offering from Korean director Shin-yun Won is a black, black, comedy; a dark and disturbing film interwoven with touches of laugh out loud hilarity. A Bloody Aria is a brutal look at the power struggles that exist in a modern society where all relationships are based on power exchanges.
During a day trip through the countryside, aspiring opera singer In-jeong flees to the woods to escape her lecherous mentor, Yeong-sun. When a local man offers a ride to the bus station, In-jeong thinks she's been saved until he insists they stop to meet his friends, a disturbed group of country thugs. In-jeong finds herself reunited with Yeong-sun and it slowly becomes clear the pair is being held captive to participate in the gang's sadistic games.
