Kim Ki-Duk – the South Korean director – participated in a conversation held as part of the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK).

“My movies are conceived from my heart. This is the reason why people like my movies,” says Kim Ki-Duk – the South Korean director – at the conversation held as part of the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK) on Thursday.

“Anarchy is part of any art form. I treat violence and nonviolence equally. Violence in my movies is my effort to express the negative realities in our society," says Kim.

 

In reply to a question on the solution to issues he portrays in his movies he says that there is no solution to violence.

“I am just trying to pose questions through my movies. I feel that sexual energy is powerful and it creates the world, human beings. Many people don't know about the violence happening around. Each individual has different experiences in life. For me violence is part of life, like happiness,” says Kim.

“My films Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring and Moebius have extreme themes. But the messages I try to convey through these themes are the same. Life is painful and Moebius closely depicts human life while Spring Summer Fall Winter and Spring is a long-shot movie, which shows nature and human life as well. When we get closer to life, violence is inevitable. I don’t discriminate male or female in my movies. I have deep respect for women,” says Kim.

 

He says 'Arirang' – the documentary film made by him portrays himself. “Script is the most important part of any film. Young filmmakers should believe in themselves. Live your thoughts and beliefs. My films are based on the lives of people, made from my heart. I make stories from scattered thoughts I get from travels,” says Kim.
