“MEATOPIA” by Ru Kyung-rok Chung
Korea 2008, 22 min
Synopsis: It is the last city at the end of the world, which is actually an enormous slaughterhouse for cannibals, and there is “the Absolute Master.”
People are bred in compliance with the butcher shop master. A strangely transformed family (similar to cows) was caught because they tried to eat their dead little baby without reporting. NONEM is employed in the butcher shop of this city. He met a girl of the family. They are getting closer, but the day is coming that the family has to be slaughtered.
The Special Guest of the evening is producer JONAS WEYDEMANN. Together with his brother, he produces for their Cologne and Berlin based production company Weydemann Bros, films for the national and the international market, with the vision of a narrative cinema that is both entertaining and political. Jonas studied at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (dffb) and since 2007 he is programming director at the “Wendland Shorts” short film festival. He was invited in programmes such as IDFAcademy, Berlinale Talent Campus and EAVE producers workshop and is the winner of the Robert Bosch Coproduction Prize.
Please join us at the Filmkunst Bar Fitzcarraldo, Reichenberger Straße 133 in Kreuzberg. The session starts as always at 8:30 pm and the screening at 9 pm. Entrance is and will remain free. See you all on Thursady!
