This special section screens the works of Roy Andersson, an acclaimed contemporary Swedish filmmaker, artist and photographer. Roy Andersson received little attention in Korea till now. This time, Jeonju IFF will have a chance to catch his previous films on the big screen and recognize the true value of his various reflections on humans. In addition to the director’s well-known works such as Songs From the Second Floor, You, the Living and A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence (the winner of the Golden Lion Award at the Venice International Film Festival), Andersson’s short films, including To Fetch a Bike, give a clear idea of his early interests. In particular, the young couple’s moments of hesitation and wanderings in the morning in To Fetch a Bike are evidences of the director’s distinctive fascination with people, not to mention his intention to express inherent human characteristics. He puts forward a truly acute vision of love, dream, emptiness and destruction among many other things. Thus, Andersson’s unique perspectives give rise to a series of unexpected sequences. The world found in his works offers a new vision of various dissonances pulled in together. Gergely Palos, a renowned cinematographer, who has been cooperating with Roy Andersson, visits Jeonju to meet with cineastes in Master Class.
