Storyline

Bitter, Sweet, Seoul, a crowd sourced film is a strange yet wonderful documentary sponsored by the local Seoul government and helmed by brothers Park Chan-wook and Park Chan-kyong. Through the Seoul, Our Movie campaign over 11,000 submissions from around the world were entered. The Park Brothers short listed and edited only 141 clips. Together these make a document which shows Korea's capital, warts and all. The footage is as varied and dynamic as the city itself, with some clips shot to professional standards and others captured through phones and other devices.
