    [#i_]The Suspended Vocation[_i#] is an adaptation of Pierre Klosovsky´s autobiographical novel based on the factional struggle in the Catholic Church. Reflecting Ruiz´s belief that ´the system treats all differences as rebellions´, this project has anecdotes. In 1942, monks attempted to produce the film but gave up due to lack of costs. They made a second attempt 20 years later. The director at that time wanted professional actors, but the church, concerned about rising costs, withdrew the support. Finally, Ruiz did the third attempt, synthesizing all the data in 1971. The film overlaps stories in different ages and takes the form of ´film in film´ and is combined with his film and the unfinished films made in 1942 and 1962. By alternating the black and white image and the color image, he creates a mood of wandering a maze of building. [JANG Byungwon]



"He was born in 1941 in Puerto Montt, Chile, and died in Paris on 19 August 2011. From 1973 he lived in France, where he made most of his more than 120 films. Ruiz´s career began in the avant-garde theatre where, from 1956 to 1962, he wrote over 100 plays. In 1968, he releases his first completed feature, Three Sad Tigers, immediately winning the Golden Leopard in Locarno that year. Ruiz became one of the key Chilean directors of New Latin American Cinema.Influenced by the fabulist tradition that runs through much Latin American literature ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, and Alfonso Reyes, Ruiz is a poet of fantastic images whose films slip effortlessly from reality to imagination and back again. Ruiz is renowned and acclaimed worldwide, regular presence, for the past 40 years, in the major international film festivals ? nominated 4 times for the Golden Palm at Cannes, where was also jury in 2002, won the Golden Leopard in Locarno, won the Siler Bear in Berlin, won the Cesar, was nominated for the Golden Lion int Venice, won Twice the FIPRESCI Award in Montreal, was honoured in 2004 Rotterdam - ´Raul Ruiz: An Eternal Wanderer´ and also in 2007 Rome Film Festival that showcased 46 of his films. In 1983, the mythic cinema magazine 『Cahiers du Cinema』 does an exclusive special number, entirely dedicated to Ruiz, a tribute paid to very few directors in the history of World Cinema, electing his film The Hypothesis of the Stolen Painting(1978) as one of the best 10 films of the world, made in the 70´s and electing him as the most important French director since Rohmer, Bresson and Godard.
