Finecut Picks Up Kim Ki-duk’s ‘Human’

South Korean sales company Finecut has picked up the latest film by Kim Ki-duk, “Human, Space, Time and Human.”

It stars Japan’s Mina Fujii (“Death Note: Light up the New World”) and Joe Odagiri (“I Wish”), veteran Korean actors Ahn Sung-ki (“Revivre”), Ryoo Seung-bum (“The Net”), Lee Sung-jae (“Public Enemy”) and Jang Keun-suk (“You’re My Pet”), in a tale that tests and reveals the true nature of the human race.

“Time and Human” sees the story of a group of people who wake up in the morning to find themselves stuck in a battleship no longer floating in water.

“I made this film in order to stop hating humans,” the arthouse maverick said in a statement released by Finecut.

Currently in post-production, “Time and Human” is the twenty third production by the director whose previous works including “The Isle” and “3- Iron” have been recognized by major European film festivals. But Kim remains controversial in his home country and the film’s Korean release date has yet to be set.
