NYC-based South Korean filmmaker Min Soo Park captures the strength and resilience of diverse human bodies and communities across three short episodes, created with production company SOUVENIR. BODIES delves into the stories of three subjects pursuing their passions by training physically and mentally. Some do it for love and self-expression, and others do it for discipline and community.

The episodes feature Rhyis, a bodybuilder, Wenxin and his parkour friends, and a collective of Kung Fu Wushu masters.

“I worked on BODIES with a producer friend, Ted Kim, as the first portrait series at SOUVENIR,” Park shared. “We focused on individuals or groups that dedicated themselves to training and shaping their bodies, thinking that their physical energy would contrast nicely with the visual style we were going for.”
