Le DVD 4 est sur "La force de la poésie" : le cinéaste kazakh évoque la singularité de son film, tourné en pleine perestroïka d'après un scénario du grand écrivain russe d'origine coréenne, Anatoli Kim (29')
In the beginning of the 1940’s, hundreds of
thousands of Koreans that had lived in the Russian
Far East since the 19th Century were forcibly
displaced overnight according to Stalin’s orders.
They were regarded as traitors and public enemies.
Women, children and old people were sent away
with no explanation. The Korean diaspora, with a
population of over a million, has been a forbidden
topic for many years. Revenge is the first film
telling the story of their tragedy.
In a rage, a teacher murders a boy. Another
boy is bred, for one sole purpose: to avenge his
brother’s death. Kazakh master Ermek Shinarbaev’s
close collaboration with the Korean-Russian writer
Anatoli Kim yielded three great films, the most
remarkable of which is this beautiful, profoundly
unsettling film. A true odyssey, geographically and
psychologically, it is one of the greatest films to
emerge from the Kazakh New Wave and one of the
Restored in 2010 by the World Cinema
Foundation using the original camera negative, the
sound negative and a positive print provided by the
Kazakhfilm Studio and held at the State Archive of
the Republic of Kazakhstan.
