URBAN ISLAND, a documentary music video by Nils Clauss and Namhui Park, will screen at the International Short Film Festival Berlin (Interfilm). The 31st edition of the festival will take place between the 10th and 15th of November.
The video, which features the song VARÚÐ by Icelandic band SIGUR RÓS, focuses on a homeless man in his forties, who has lived on the streets of Seoul for more than 8 years. He has been part of a small homeless community for the past four years, which camps out in a little park next to the train tracks of Yongsan Station. As the man strictly refuses to receive charity, he frequents the city streets each night to make a living by collecting recyclables.
For everyone interested in watching the video on big screen, the festival offers two screenings:
CONTENTED just released their promo film for the Goethe-Institut Korea. We would like to thank the Goethe-Institut and the whole team for their tremendous support. A special thanks goes out to the 4 main characters of the film: Kkobbi Kim, Seungmin Cha, Hyunjee Ha and Kyung-Sung Lee.
The film intercuts the personal journeys of four Korean people from different walks of life. The characters are connected by the fact that the Goethe-Institut and Germany plays some part in their lives.

The Beauty of Ageing (그대로) project initiated from the question “Is ageing a sad thing?.” Beauty of Ageing meets the elderly and aims to face them as they are – not as an ‘elderly’ but as a person. Moreover the project aims to bridge the gap between the young and old, where they can meet, understand and talk to each other. The magazine is published by graphic designer Shin In-ah and editor Maeng Sunho. These images have been taken for issue “0”.
