DOOMSDAY BOOK Gets Picked Up for Distribution by Well Go USA
The long-gestating Doomsday Book three-part omnibus, from directors Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil, 2010) and Im Pil-sung (Antarctic Journal, 2005), was finally completed earlier this year before going on limited release in its native Korea last month. M-Line Distribution has now sold its high-concept feature, which initially went into production in 2006, to Well Go USA for North American distribution. The project was also sold to Splendid for the German and Benelux markets.
Two acclaimed Korean directors unfurl three unique stories of human self-destruction in the modern high-tech era. In a hope to restore the humane compassion in the insusceptible modern age, the film displays an alternative form of genuine humanity. And thus you are stepping into the world of future, where a series of unexpected stories awaits you. All these stories originate from the earth. From the very earth you live on.
