 Directed by Park Chan Kyong, who previously co-directed the shorts Day Trip and Night Fishing with brother Park Chan Wook, Manshin: Ten Thousand Spirits is an innovative documentary about the life and times of Korea's top shaman Kim Keum Hwa. Born in North Korea in 1931, Kim Keum Hwa became a shaman at the age of 17. From then on she – and her homeland – would experience many ups and downs, as the film intertwines Kim's personal stories with important events of modern Korean history. Shunned and scorned for her calling in her younger years, Kim would eventually rise to great cultural prominence as South Korea's "national shaman."

 True to Park Chan Kyong's roots as a visual artist, Manshin: Ten Thousand Spirits is anything but a straightforward documentary, weaving together archive footage, shamanistic ritual performances, animation as well as dramatic reenactments with actresses Kim Sae Ron, Ryu Hyun Kyung and Moon So Ri into a unique cinematic treat. The film offers not only a fascinating biography of one uncommon woman's life against turbulent times, but also a stunning meditation on past and present, mystical and modern, in the context of Korean culture and history.
