Mother Midnight

Mother Midnight | 서까래 (𝗦𝗘𝗢𝗞𝗞𝗔𝗥𝗔𝗘) is the debut feature film by writer/director Mike Beech. The film is about a young Korean woman who struggles to run her recently departed mother’s countryside guesthouse while a local bully attempts to extort her and her alcoholic father. Despite relationship troubles and a failing business, she accepts the aid of a local shaman as she attempts to save her family’s home.

A rare glimpse into a world we rarely get to see, with a wonderfully understated performance by Jiwon Lee.
