Arirang is a 2011 South Korean documentary film by Kim Ki Duk. The film addresses a personal crisis Kim went through, sparked by an incident during the filming of his previous film, Dream, where the lead actress nearly died by hanging, and by the departure of a couple of close colleagues, including the director Jang Hoon. The title comes from a Korean folk song with the same title. In a heavily line-brokentext released about the film, Kim writes that “Through Arirang I understand human beings, thank the nature, and accept my life as it is now.”
