Seoul Station (Seoul-yeok), Republic of Korea produced by Lee Dong-ha, Suh Young-joo, Yeon Sang-ho won the Best Animated Feature at APSA 2016
An undead cannibal apocalypse is gripping the city of Seoul. A runaway teenager is caught up in the unfolding drama as the government declares the whole area a no go zone. This film manages to blend zombie horror, entertainment and acute social criticism brilliantly.
Jury Chair Chris Fujiwara said:“We were struck most of all by the film’s social and political critique which is directed at the authoritarian function of the police and the authority structure of the patriarchal family. We thought the film was quite successful in making this critique through the zombie narrative as a vehicle, and the animation was very skilfully done,”Share:
