AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

“Decisively showcases the deft, subtle hand needed to pull off satirical social critique … strands of dark humour run through the film, sardonically perched between workplace hijinks and anomic tragedy.” Slant

Kang Ho-chan is studying for his dream job as a TV producer, but as the main breadwinner for his family he must juggle his studies with a part-time office job. When one of his full-time colleagues resigns, and the offer of a full-time job is put on the table, he finds himself drawn into the ruthless political manoeuvrings of the workplace.

A double FIPRESCI Award-winner (at the Busan and Hong Kong film festivals), 10 Minutes is the striking debut feature from Lee Yong-seung. Produced by Kim Dong-ho – founder of Busan International Film Festival, Asia Pacific Screen Awards patron and legend of the Korean film scene – this is a film that artfully skewers the petty office machinations that consume the lives of so many of us.
