Jim Slotek’s guide to TIFF: K- Korean. A language it would be great to know, considering how South Korea continues to produce films with violence and sexual license on par with ’70s Hollywood. In a twist this year one of them is Canadian — the haunting drama In Her Place, shot in Seoul by York grad Albert Shin.
“In Her Place” was a labour of love, years in-the-making, that would not have been possible without the amazing support I received from colleagues and collaborators both in Korea and Canada alike. To be able to finally share all our hard work to the TIFF audience is a special honour, especially for a hometown filmmaker. Growing up in the GTA, the Toronto International Film Festival was always the essential avenue to discover bold new films and filmmakers, and now to be included in this great tradition, in the city I still call home, is truly a dream come true.
