"I love Plastic Girls! It's so beguiling and gorgeously shot and the music is really eerie and evocative. We need more men filmmakers thinking about these things." (Jude Dry - IndieWire)
"A unique film that shows the rawness of Korea's reality in a different way." (Lee Myung-Se - director of Nowhere To Hide, Duelist, M)
With slow graceful movements and digitally generated messages, Plastic Girls make a conspicuous contribution to the sexualisation of public space in front of their owners premises.
PLASTIC GIRLS is the last film of a Korea related trilogy following BIKINI WORDS | vimeo.com/151000182 | and LAST LETTERS | vimeo.com/195284427 | .
