Concrete Utopia

Milwaukee Film Festival

The world has been reduced to rubble by a massive earthquake and there is only one apartment building left standing in Seoul. Tenants are grateful to have been spared, but tensions mount as survivors from the surrounding city arrive seeking shelter. As days pass and no rescue teams arrive, the tenants vote to evict the outsiders. CONCRETE UTOPIA follows its characters’ gradual descent into ruthless tribalism in a way that eerily mirrors so many contemporary global events.
