Plastic Girls at Indie Memphis Film Festival

We are incredibly honored to announce that PLASTIC GIRLS will screen in the Documentary Shorts Competition as part of the 21st edition of the INDIE MEMPHIS FILM FESTIVAL. The event takes place between the 1st and 5th of November in Memphis, Tennessee. INDIE MEMPHIS itself has been voted both as one of “The 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World” and as one of the “50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee” by MOVIE MAKER Magazine.

About Plastic Girls

PLASTIC GIRLS is the last film of a Korea related trilogy following BIKINI WORDS and LAST LETTERS. What unites the 3 films is a strong focus on issues related to space and architecture, but each film itself stands out with an individual subject matter. PLASTIC GIRLS is the most quirky out of the 3 films. The presented mannequins are unique to Korea and the film explores through them a clever way to address gender issues in Korea without flatly denouncing the society itself.

For more information about PLASTIC GIRLS please read a very thorough interview on film blog DIRECTORS NOTES, which dives into some of the ideas behind and the making of this film.
