16th Jecheon International Music & Film Festival


Trip of the Blues
Korea | 2018 | World | 79min | DCP | Color | Documentary | Blues


The film follows the music and life of Um In-ho of Sinchon Blues. He has lived only for music, even though he born in 1952, experienced turmoil moments after the Korean War. He had performed in nightclubs long and had his debut late, but kept his creativity. Once a famous singer, he is now recognized by just few people. But still, he is on the stage, sings and writes songs. The film shows not only music but also how a human being finds the reason to be, overcoming downhill through music. ​< Supported by JIMFF 2017 Music Film Project Promotion >
