The Tenants

World Premiere

YOON Eun-Kyung South Korea 2023 90 min PG13 (Horror and Some Coarse Language)

In this Kafkaesque reality, a soon-to-be-evicted tenant employs a bizarre subletting scheme that may be his solution.

In a dystopian South Korean city, an office worker endures the tedium of his job in hopes of gaining a transfer to ‘Sphere 2’, where a supposedly better reality awaits. Facing eviction by his adolescent landlord, he decides to complicate the process by renting his toilet out to an eccentric couple, but their strange behaviours soon become unbearable.

Director Yoon Eun-Kyung mixes science-fiction, horror and black comedy with a cast of off-kilter characters to deliver a biting critique on the ills of contemporary society. With its bold genre-mashing, The Tenants heralds a new, exciting voice in independent Korean cinema.
