Filmmaker Kim Ki-duk returns from self-imposed cinematic exile with Arirang, a feverish documentary plunge into his own psyche.

Traumatised after one of his actresses nearly died during the shooting of his 2008 film Dream, art-house director Kim Ki-duk withdrew from filmmaking for three years. With Arirang he finally re-emerges, but this time he turns the lens on himself, constructing a fascinating, self-made reflection on his own approach to art.

Using a handheld camera to chronicle his time holed up in a country retreat, Kim reflects on his life, art and choices, creating a compelling, tantalising glimpse into the mind of an obsessive filmmaker.

Winner of theĀ Un Certain Regard section at Cannes in 2011, and Australia's biggest documentary prize, BIFFDOCS, in 2011.
