Logline

NIGHT AND FOG IN ZONA

South Korean film maker accompanied Chinese director Jung Sung-il for one winter. The director, known for his epic-scale documentaries, was working on two documentaries at the time: THREE SISTERS (2012) and TIL MADNESS DO US PART (2013), a four-hour study of the life of insane asylum inmates. Jung talks to Bing about his movies, about films in general, about their love for the films of Andrei Tarkovsky – and about time in the movies. Jung’s filmic essay mirrors the films of Bing stylistically: Long takes, abstract landscapes, minimalist music. And a four-hour runtime.
