ANIDOX: RESIDENCY 2019
ANIDOX:RESIDENCY is focused on Korea this year, initiating a professional programme – together with DMZ Docs. for an Animated Documentary in development. The programme is hosted by NiNoko and Viborg Animation Festival.
We are proud to have hosted “Happy Funeral” By Suhyun Song who will join us in Viborg, Denmark for a 4 week residency: Suhyun is an emerging filmmaker based in Korea, who recently gained a MFA in Film Directing from Edinburgh College of Art, University of Edinburgh. She has been working in both fiction and documentary. Her first short fiction film, “A Boy’s Summer-“, and her first short documentary “Winter with Umma”, have been screened internationally. “Happy Funeral” is in development as a hybrid feature length documentary film with support from DMZDocs. and The Animation Workshop, in collaboration with Goodjobstudios (Denmark).

Guiding and connecting with those seeking meaning in loss, death and life, young people are starting a new trend – including rehearsing for their own funerals. An episodic film tracking a change in taboos and rituals: Death, burial and the future of ceremony in a culture of prevailing loneliness. Using humor and animation to elevate concepts such as 죽음 ( Death), 삶 (Life), 치유 (Therapy) and 꿈 (Dream).
I wish it would be a chance for audiences to rethink the connection between death and life through this ‘Happy Funeral’ journey. It is closer than you might think. So, how would you like to go?

SINKING OF THE TRUTH // Collective, 2017
In 1918, Winsor McCay was commissioned “The sinking of the Lusitania”, a propaganda film portraying the sinking of an English boat by a German submarine during WW1. Beside being an animation classic, this film is considered to be the first ever made animated documentary (link to the original film here). 100 years later, a group of filmmakers set out to remake ”The Sinking Of The Lusitania”; The world’s first animated documentary, and a propaganda piece which pushed the USA into the first world war. But making a film truer to the events that transpired proves difficult in a modern world of fake news, commercial interests, ever changing perspectives and a never stopping flow of misinformation.
The project is supported by Aarhus 2017 European capital of culture.
Directed by: Tobias Gundorff Boesen, Denis Chapon, Tynesha Foreman, Sander Joon, Philip Piaget, Marie-Josée Saint-Pierre, Wiep Teeuwisse. Produced by: ANIDOX, Michelle & Uri Kranot
