The winner of he Grand Jury Prize at the L.A. Outfest film festival, A Distant Place centres on the life of Jin-woo, a sheep rancher who living with his niece, Seol, and the family who employs him on their farm. It's an idyllic way of life which allows Seol to explore the nearby countryside and affords them a simple, peaceful existence. This peace is disrupted, however, when Jin-woo's lover Hyeon-min arrives, soon to be followed by his sister Eun-yeong who is seeking custody of her daughter. This complex family dynamic is handled beautifully by writer-director Kun-Young Park, with Kang Gil-woo excellent in the role of Jin-woo. It's also stunningly shot, with the filmmaker making he most of the striking South Korean landscape.
