Program Note
A girl shows her trust of a boy by showing him a dead fetus in a jar. Her relationship with the soccer coach she once loved left her haunted by the agony of murder. The boy, who desperately wants to leave after witnessing his mother’s affair, decides to pool money together with the girl. The unnamed protagonists of A Boy and a Girl act out a story about all boys and girls today who are extorted rather than protected by adults. The greatest tragedy of all lies in the fact that no matter what misdeeds they might commit, the unsympathetic, even malevolent punishment they face far exceeds their misdeeds. A feature debut film by Hsu Li-Da, who has built a career through short films and television dramas, this film will be world-premiered at the 2023 BIFF. (CHOI Eun)
