Treeless Mountain

The latest feature film from director So Yong Kim, Treeless Mountain is a beautiful and delicate depiction of her own memories growing up as a child in Korea. Treeless Mountain immerses viewers in the lonely world of its two young protagonists – six-year-old Jin (Hee-yeon Kim) and her four-year-old sister Bin (Song-hee Kim). When their mother (Soo-ah Lee) goes in search of their estranged father the girls are forced to up sticks and move in with their stern Aunt (Mi-hyang Kim). They spend their days waiting for their mother to return and saving pennies to fill their large pink piggy bank. A simple yet heartfelt tale, So Yong Kim magically captures the world from their eyes....
