DocFilm Intern Interview: DAEWON KIM

Interview by DocFilm Social Media Intern, Timothy Winslow

1.Where are you from?
I’m from Seoul, South Korea.

2. What year are you in here at SFSU?
My first year at SFSU is 2010. I finished BA at 2013 and now, I’m 2nd year MFA student.

3. What are you majoring in and why?
My major is Cinema and the reason why I choose it because of a film, Duel (1971) which is directed by Steven Spielberg. When I was just ten years old, I watched the film and this film led me to the career path of becoming a filmmaker. An inanimate tanker truck was turned into a lively character, and as a young audience, I felt the infinite power of film.

4. What are your responsibilities in DocFilm?
I’m mainly editing footages for DocFilm.

5. Are you working on any other projects?
Currently, I’m making my own thesis film.

6. What do you hope to get out of interning for DocFilm?
I love to meet people and talk with people. It leads me to make a good connection.

7. Are there any documentaries you’d recommend?
I trust that a main purpose of documentaries is entertainment and delivering message. This is why I like Michael Moore’s documentaries. He is the person who makes documentaries as entertainment because of his cinematic language and humorous and his topics are always interested me.

Thank you, Daewon.
