Woman Is the Future of Man
aka Yeojaneun namjaui miraeda
First screened in August 2014

Twitter Capsule: Hong's tale seems rather simple, then surprisingly confusing, then confusing by subtly inventive design.

VOR:   Themes aren't new (male rivalry and solipsism), nor are techniques. Still, Hong's slippery minimalism is distinctive, as is the silky knot into which he ties his story.
