The Last Witness

London Korean Film Festival


Detective Oh Byeong-ho goes searching for the murderer of small-time brewer Yang Dal-su, bludgeoned to death by a quiet riverside: no witnesses, no apparent motive. As lone-wolf Oh wanders about the winter landscape of South Jeolla Province and Seoul, he finds himself caught in a story of treachery, rape and murder. It all goes back to Yang’s role as leader of an anti-Communist militia that hunted down a desperate band of northern guerrillas in the final days of the Korean War.


Followed by a Q&A with the Director Lee Doo-yong
