AAFF PRESENTS: Nothing or Everything

In her first feature film Nothing or Everything, South Korean filmmaker Gyeol Kim says a lot with a little. A limited range of shots, combined with a shallow depth-of-field, place the emphasis on the individual characters as a story of deep emotional trauma unfolds. A rich and complex narrative draws from the strength of its two actors, exquisite cinematography, and circular time structure in which the past and present play out simultaneously. Despite the simple-seeming premise of two women walking on a mountain, the film draws the viewer in to discover so much more. In its use of light, Nothing or Everything is atmospheric and original. In form, it is innovative; aesthetically and sonically
