We recently created a strategy for 6, 20, AND 7 directed Ji Kim.

"Based on the interviews getting from 6 homeless people with the compensation of 20 Euros, 2 actress/es reenact the interviews in a surreal setting, which ends with the same sentence."

An insightful, experimental documentary about homelessness. 6, 20, AND 7 is a powerfully creative look at sleeping rough and the effects on an individual's mental health. We're excited to take this short film on its film festival journey.
