Cannes Film Festival: 'Arirang' and 'Hearat Shulayim'

What can a director do when he's unable to find the crew and backers to make movies? South Korea's Kim Ki-duk knows: he made a film about himself. Arirang and Hearat Shulayim contemplate revenge, in very different contexts.

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring (2004)

If the film may not reveal all the tenets of the religion's philosophy, it provides a sensory experience of Buddhist principle and wisdom.
