About This DVD
Ever wondered what God ate for dinner? According to the director of a Christian orphanage in The Forgotten Child: Shin Sung-Il is Lost, the answer is nothing! Growing up in an environment which sees consumption as the original sin, kids like Shin Sung Il are moved by inevitable curiosity to see what's outside their little world. And what a world they find! Not only are there strange places called restaurants where people eat different sorts of food every day, but all the adults in the orphanage eat too. Wait, adults can eat and the kids can't? It's up to chubby young Shin Sung Il and his associates to find out the mystery behind the strange world of adults.
With her biting satire of consumerism and the hypocrisy of indoctrination, Jane Shin made a name for herself straight from her first feature, The Forgotten Child: Shin Sung-Il is Lost, which screened at Berlin, Vancouver, London, Hong Kong, and many other important film festivals. Shin, one of Korea's few female directors, graduated from the Korean Academy of Film Arts and instantly made a mark with her hilarious short film Talented Boy Lee Jun Seop, which won the Critics' Prize at the 2003 Asiana International Short Film Festival. With characters called Shin Sung Il (the biggest star in 60s and 70s Korean Cinema) and Lee Young Ae (heroine of Jewel in the Palace and Sympathy For Lady Vengeance) and irreverent social satire, The Forgotten Child: Shin Sung-Il is Lost is one of the most unique independent films of recent memory.
