NEXT SOHEE

다음 소희

Young Sohee (Kim Si-eun) is a bubbly, tenacious vocational high-school student with a fiery temperament living in rural Korea. She is excited when she lands an externship at a major internet provider’s call center, but the prized office job turns out to be a nightmarish workplace. She is placed under immense pressure from the company to reach the best team target. The work is daunting even to a gutsy girl like Sohee, and to make matters worse, externs only receive a fraction of the normal wages. Sohee is constantly threatened, but when her overworked supervisor takes his own life, it sets off a psychological descent that will lead her to commit an irreparable act. When rebellious detective Yoo-jin (Bae Doona) is brought in to investigate, what she discovers about the events that led to this dark act lead her down a rabbit hole into a world of institutionalized exploitation, corruption and neglect.

A searing indictment of a broken system and the consequences of turning a blind eye, NEXT SOHEE from director July Jung (A GIRL AT MY DOOR) closed the prestigious Critics’ Week at Cannes earlier this year. Jung’s sophomore film, inspired by a heinous act ripped from Korean headlines in 2016, is a powerful, essential work and one of the most daring Korean films of the year.

소희(김시은)는 고등학교 졸업을 앞두고 인터넷 회사 콜센터에 현장실습생으로 취직한다. 소녀는 대기업에 취직했다며 들뜨지만, 실상은 기대와 다르다. 노동 착취가 예사로 일어나는 콜센터는 그야말로 노동 지옥이다. 그곳의 잔인한 현실은 암울한 사고로 이어지고, 형사 유진(배두나)은 악착같이 진실을 좇는다. 그러나 부조리한 사회 시스템 앞에서 그녀는 무력함을 절감한다.
