100 Years of Korean Cinema, co-organized by Jeonju IFF and Korean Film Council to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Korean Cinema, introduces the Korean films that have not received enough attention during its 100-year history, or have a distinct historical value even though they are already known. The Flower in Hell is the oldest of the films to be screened, and shows that director Shin Sang-ok has not only been known as a master of commercial feature films of the genre, but also a realism-oriented director, and Bloodline by Kim Soo-yong is a Neo-realistic masterpiece that has not been noticed for a long time. The Empty Dream is a film reflecting the director Yu Hyun-mok's expressionistic imagination, but was not properly evaluated due to the issue of sensationalism at that time, and Homebound by Lee Man-hee shows that he can still be regarded as a pioneer of Korean modern cinema's narrative techniques. The General's Mustache by Lee Seong-gu is a film that can be remembered as a new milestone for the satirical genre in Korean film history, and The Ascension of Han-ne by Ha Gil-jong makes us guess the artistic aims of the misfortunate genius director who was unable to present all his film world.
Ieoh Island by Kim Ki-young has long been underestimated in the shadow of “The Housemaid” series, but it shows a conclusive work of the director's film world, and Jagko shows how director Im Kwon-taek thinks about Korean realism focusing on history and social reality. The Man with Three Coffins shows the profound cinematic scenes reflecting the authorial unconsciousness of Lee Jang-ho, and The Dream by Bae Chang-ho is a film that was undervalued at that time but reached the culmination of aesthetics in Korean cinema. A Single Spark by Park Kwang-su and A Petal by Jang Sun-woo are the masterpieces of two directors representing the generation of Korean New Wave that dug into the history and reality of Korea and established its own original forms.
