ExamiNation is a short documentary film about the notorious South Korean college entrance exam, Sooneung (수능). While introducing all sorts of incredible facts and stats about the exam, it also follows a day in the life of a student preparing for this exam. The film will unveil how one exam can dictate a culture and lifestyle in a country.
I started this project in the spring of 2010, shot it over the summer in Seoul, Korea, and edited over 9 months during my sophomore year. After 14 months of wrestling with it, I was able to present the piece at my premiere on May 21 at Northwestern University.
ExamiNation won the Highest Achievement Award at Northwestern University Film Festival (NUFF) in May 2011.
