Ji-Yoon Park(b. 1992~) is a documentary filmmaker who is especially interested in expanding the boundaries of documentaries. Her filmmaking style involves defamiliarisation and recontextualisation to subvert perspectives that people are already familiar with as well as to explore various aspects of each story. Instead of choosing to make films based on a particular subject, she has made films based on curiosity, intuition and her lived experiences. Ultimately, she aims to create work that precisely captures people’s complicated emotions. She is currently developing new documentaries and open to collaborations. She is also curating films as a film programmer for the 14th Seoul Int'l Senior Film Festival at present.
다큐멘터리를 만드는 필름메이커. 특히 다큐멘터리의 경계를 확장하는데 관심이 많다. 낯설게 하기와 재맥락화를 통해 기존의 익숙한 관점들을 전환하고 각 이야기의 다양한 측면을 보여주는 방식의 영화 만들기를 주로 해왔다. 특정 주제에 기반해서 영화를 만들기보단 호기심, 직감 그리고 직접적으로 경험한 것들에 기초에서
영화를 만들려고 한다.
궁극적으로 사람들의 복합적인 감정을 가장 정확하게 포착하는 작업들을 하고 싶다. 현재 새로운 다큐멘터리들을 기획, 개발하는 중이며 콜라보레이션을 기대하고 있다.
