The King of Pigs - Film Screening
Pan-Asia Film Festival
08 Mar 2013
A stunning work of animation, Yeon Sang-ho’s award winning film sees businessman Kyung-min meet up with old school friend Jong-suk. Looking back on their school days, when cruel, privileged bullies ‘The Dogs’ exercised a reign of terror over ‘The Pigs’ – their name for all other students at the school – they relive the episode when classmate Kim Chul became the school’s only hope of ending ‘The Dogs’ tyranny. Recalling the murky origins of their bond, Kyung-min also proves to be hiding an equally dark, much more recent secret. An unmissable satire of class, violence and human debasement.
