Spotlight on Korea
Gye-Soo Jeon

South Korea

2019 / 114’ / International Premiere / Korean


There are many things that make Seo-young (Chun Woo-Hee) dizzy: the disorienting precarity of being a contract office worker, the uncertainty of having an illicit affair with her handsome boss, Jin-Soo (Yoo Teo), or the fact that she has to live this life every day at the top of a Seoul skyscraper. To add injury to insult, Seo-young suffers from vertigo, a condition exasperated by the swaying of the tall tower.

Seo-young patiently awaits the day when she can have a steady job and go public with her relationship with Jin-Soo, but when things begin to go south with both her health and her boss, her mental and emotional stability unravels precipitously. Unbeknownst to Seo-young, however, she has a secret admirer just outside her window.  VERTIGO is director Jeon Gye-soo’s return to the melodramatic film genre after 11 years.
