EAFFI DISCOVERIES: ONE AND FOUR
Thursday January 5th, 18:30
Forest ranger Sanggye is isolated, confused, starving and hungover after a night of drinking with Kunbo, a friend and neighbour from Sanggye’s village who came visit. With a blizzard fast approaching, he is visited one after another by three duplicitous men, each with their own stories. Sanggye finds himself caught in a complicated ‘huis clos’ of double-crossing and mistaken identities.
