Byungseok Kim was born in 2000 in Seoul, South Korea. Since he was young, he enjoyed writing stories and continued his pursuit of storytelling as a film and media arts major at the University of Utah. In his freshman year, he consulted on the Korean translation of the screenplay of Director Lee Isaac Chung's "Minari." His experience on numerous student film sets has culminated in his most recent work, "Swerve Confrontation."
"Swerve Confrontation" began with a grand question: What can art do? In the process of developing the story, there was a clear desire to contain my own artistic preference for ruins, places of forgotten memory, where only traces of someone's life remain. These subjects have always stimulated me as an artist. Through a series of images of deserted places, including ruins and construction sites, and through the process of capturing them on camera, the film was created with a strong belief that art can serve as a bridge between forgotten time and the present. The film is a proclamation of hope that the poetic language of art will remove the walls between people in the contemporary world where layers of miscommunication are accumulating.
