HYE-RYOUNG PARK | Director
For the past 20 years, Hye-Ryoung has made more than 40 documentaries for South Korea’s major broadcasters, KBS, MBC, and SBS. Her forte is in human- interest documentaries as she takes on an anthropological approach to the people she encounters within their social and cultural context. Her depth of storytelling is seen in the way that she continues to document over many years, the stories of people embedded in their traditional way of life in a modernizing world. Alongside documentaries, she is also an executive producer for food related entertainment programs, and finds interest in developing content for new program formats. A believer in the multi-use of one source, she combines her creativity with her business skills. She founded her production company Media Hayanso in 2009.
CANA Film Festival promises to engage film enthusiasts in a visual extravaganza with themes that inspire discourse on the state of humanity and shed light on social issues through the power of storytelling.
Films that will be screened look to espouse the universality of Catholic Social Teachings through depictions of good versus evil, friendship, hope and disappointments, life, love and loss in the selection of films to be screened. The festival encourages all to participate in conversations and reflections on the principles of Catholic Social Teachings.
Examples of these Catholic Social Teachings (CSTs) include Dignity of the Human Person, Dignity of Work, Promotion of Peace etc. The screenings are paired with panel discussions with experts relevant to the social theme highlighted in the films in an effort to inspire audiences to live a more purposeful and authentic life.
