Lodo


Directed by Kim Ki-young , 1977
26 October 2007

Lodo centered on an island of the south coast of Korea is populated by woman who live off the sea, structuring their lives 'according to the old traditions'.Removed from the modern influences of the mainland, the island exists as a detached society where ancient customs prevail and the local shaman wields great power. When one of the island's native sons who had gone to the mainland disappears off the deck of a tourist ship, a businessman, suspected of killing him, travels to the island in the hope of uncovering the truth behind the man's disappearance. The vistor comes to learn the tangled history behind the man's supposedly cursed lineage, even as he gets enmeshed in the affairs of the island himself.
