The Korean film industry is growing at a rapid pace, with commercial films bringing in more than 10 million moviegoers and documentary films that are winning praise around the world. Documentaries of all genres, production techniques, and content including the critically acclaimed "Planet of Snail" and 'Iron Crows' are being released in Korea each year.
What are documentaries to documentary directors? We ask directors for insight on Korean documentaries, and their own definition of the documentary film, as well as their forecasts for the growing Korean documentary market.
We also speak with Arnaud Gonne, a student from France who has come to Korea to study documentaries. He is learning about Korea by studying Korean documentaries - how does he see Korean documentaries, and Korea as a nation?
Watch as documentary directors and an exchange student from France share their thoughts on the excellence and future potential of Korean documentaries in a dynamic conversation on 'Arirang Prime.'
