Stories That Matter: MYTHS by Objectifs
February 27 - March 2
Objectifs’ annual Stories That Matter is back! This year’s edition is themed MYTHS.
Stories That Matter 2019 unpacks the role that mythic tradition continues to play in our lives, through national, political and cultural narratives that shape our perceptions of the world.
This year’s selection of films brings to the fore the tensions and connections between reality and imagination, past and future, the individual and the collective, surfacing new ways of understanding how contemporary and traditional myths evolve and disrupt our ways of being.

Seminar by Kelvin Kyung Kun Park: Constructing the “Self” through Art
2 Mar, 2pm-3.30pm
Kelvin Kyung Kun Park is an award-winning filmmaker and visual artist from Seoul. His work frequently takes inspiration from the cultural anxieties, myths and narratives that inform South Korea’s identity and has been presented at various international venues including film festivals and in museums and galleries.
In this seminar, Park will discuss the ideas behind his works, many of which deal with industrial and military endeavour, and how in Asia, where the individual is often overlooked in favour of collective identity, art-making is an opportunity to construct the “self” he never had. He will also share his experiences straddling the film world and the art world.
SFS Film Addicts enjoy a $5 discount to this seminar!
