  • South Korea, 2001, Korean, 119mins, DCP

  • Cast: Yang Dong-geun, Kim Young-min, Ban Min-jung, Pang Eun-jin

In a South Korean village dominated by a U.S. Army base, the battered inhabitants live under threats of violence and revulsion they face every day. A mixed-race son, a girl with a mutilated eye and a shy, bullied boy are intertwined in relationships of love and pain – like caged dogs waiting to be butchered but none of them can escape their gruesome destiny. In its ominous beauty and perverse fascination, this story of violent innocence and brutal love takes a disturbing look at a spiritually bankrupt society weighed down by the continuing reverberations of war.
