“It looks at life from three feet off the ground and meets the hardening gaze of its 6-year-old protagonist head on.” -Ty Burr, The Boston Globe
Treeless Mountain is a beautifully conceived, heart-wrenching story about two young girls who must fend for themselves after being abandoned by their mother. A testament to the often unfair nature of life and the resilience of children to cope with difficult circumstance, Treeless Mountain succeeds thanks to director So Yong Kim’s ingenuity for telling compelling stories and emotional performances from young stars Hee-yeon Kim and Song-hee Kim.
