    After hearing his father’s calling, young Elder returns his hometown Huanuni. He lives in a coal-mining town with his grandmother. Barely making his ends meet, one day his godfather Francisco offers him a miner position. Once Elder finds out that Francisco is involved with his father’s death, his life completely changes. Dark Skull leaves a powerful impression visually but hard to measure the depth and makes you feel lost. Before he leaves town, he falls into the dark abyss. The mine that swallowed Elder is all or nothing. It is a workplace absolutely necessary for survival but also a place of violence. Through this fascinating debut using facts and fiction, Kiro Russo displays complete control over images. One might discover beauty so brutal in the dark and dreary cave but also be surprised to discover the reincarnation of Neo-realism. [JANG Byungwon]
