London Korean Film Festival presents Kim Hye-Mi's Climbing.

After recovering from a car accident professional climber CHOI Se-hyeon discovers that she is pregnant just before the World Championships. With her long-term aspirations threatened, she struggles to break free from the duties of motherhood. At the same time, she receives mysterious text messages from ‘herself’ who seems to have been through a quite different life after the car accident. And most importantly, she wants to keep her baby.

This stunning animated horror film has been invited to the Contrechamp competition at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2021. Made more realistic with 3D graphics and cartoon rendering to emphasize outlines, the film establishes a style that is reminiscent of 2D animation and captures the characters’ movements in minute detail.

The London Korean Film Festival (LKFF) is the UK’s leading showcase of Korean cinema, and the largest Korean Film Festival in Europe. The festival has introduced premiere screenings of major blockbusters to UK cinema screens while also incorporating the most engaging Indie hits, Women's Voices, Documentary, Animation, Shorts, Classics and more within its diverse programme. Now in its groundbreaking 16th edition, LKFF celebrates the global success of Korean cinema with a special focus on the extraordinary career of recent Oscar winner Youn Yuh-jung.
