Dir. Amanda Kim | 2023 | 107 mins | USA
English, German, Korean with English subtitles
Fearlessly innovative and playfully prophetic, Nam June Paik comes to life in Amanda Kim’s feature debut through a skilful assembly of interviews and archival footage that portrays the father of video art both in his time and through his far-reaching legacy. While covering the artist’s peripatetic journey across the mid-century avant-garde in Europe and the United States, Kim pays special attention to Paik’s Korean-American identity and his life as an artist at the forefront of an emergent art form.
This enchanting documentary portrait—featuring readings of Paik’s writings by actor Steven Yeun—offers insight into one of the most influential artists our time, whose outlook on human behaviour and technology resonates ever more powerfully in today’s interconnected world.
This screening is in collaboration with Arts Society Falmouth
