This film is conceived from the photos found one day in the basement of the house of the director’s grandmother. Cutting and pasting together these photos of family members, she looks into her own family history: she reconstructs her past, her memories, and even creates future. Familiar Faces is a humorous and witty documentary in a challenging style. (Kwon Eun-sun)
