Sometime in the very near future, a young man (Erick Lopez) is wrongfully arrested and plunged into a fully-automated and entirely un-staffed hellscape of a prison. A bitingly tense tech satire from award-winning US filmmaker Kristen "KD" Davila, PLEASE HOLD is as topical (and clever!) as they come. – Mitch Davis
Winning praise from Martin Scorsese, HAN GONG-JU verges on perfection. It’s impossible to remain unmoved by this drama, as relevant as it is powerful.
Merging auteurism and gripping suspense, this award-winner follows two men caught up in the gears of organized crime in the Korean countryside.
A captivating political thriller tinged with cynicism, masterful in its writing, acting, and direction.
