 Nine feature films and fifteen short films have been selected for this year’s Stranger than Cinema. Above all, latest films of two leading experimental directors who have shared experience with Jeonju International Film Festival will be screened.

Shireen SENO’s Big Boy will be introduced in Korea for the first time as well. The next is Jon JOST, an American independent filmmaker who works based on digital.

 As a short film program, a total of fifteen films are listed. A favorite director of JIFF audiences, who is passionately in love with cinema, Jean Marie STRAUB’s new work La madre holds the first release. La madre derives from Cesare Pavese’s Dialoghi con Leuco, shares the style of a play like the original. Except STRAUB, most of the other fourteen films are challenging works of first-time directors.

In addition, some short films are also presented which correspond with homage to classics and filmmaking itself. Louis FRIED’s Malo Desert portrays where two different camera’s points collide, one of them held on by a couple looking for an image and the other one pinned on them at the same time. Lukas MARXT’s Nella Fantasia is about Camera Ethics capturing swimming substance.
