CONFESSION,FILM

John La Raw | YouTube

Daniel Esparza - published on 09/26/17

“The Confession” won Best Short Film at the International Catholic Film Festival.

“Ethics beyond ethics, there perhaps is the undiscoverable place of forgiveness,” once wrote the contemporary French philosopher Jacques Derrida. Directed by Myanmar filmmaker John La Raw and featuring South Korean actors, The Confession, awarded Best Short Film at the International Catholic Film Festival, takes us to such an “undiscoverable” place.

Take a 15-minute break and watch this short film in its entirety.
