Following an accountant as he struggles to provide for his dysfunctional family while integrating into post-War Korean society, Aimless Bullet is Yu Hyun-mok’s most exem­plary work and a key piece of Korean realist cinema.

Capturing the collective anxiety of post-war Korea, the film was a commercial failure upon its ini­tial release and was soon banned by the military government, before finally receiving its due recognition when presented at the San Francisco International Film Festival in 1963. Since then the film has gained legendary status in Korea as a clas­sic awaiting rediscovery.

Screening as part of the London Korean Film Festival on tour.
