    Chung Guyon is a premiere architect in contemporary Korea. As such, he is accustomed to dual, often conflicting demands of material, concrete construction and abstract, philosophical social convictions. In this film, Chung shares his varied ideas on politics, society, humanity and urbanism in the context of a new, radical, and unconventional exhibition. As he struggles to mount the show, his intellectual acuity and social idealism face practical obstacles at every turn.

    Best known for her 2001 film  Please Take Care of my Cat, a critical darling and festival awardee, this is director Jeong Jae-eun’s first documentary feature. Talking Architect will hold its world premiere at the 2011 Busan International Film Festival Documentary Showcase.
