TIFF 2015: A man becomes a fish in the trailer for ‘Collective Invention’

Collective Invention

Numerous films are released each year with unique concepts, and among the 2015 entries is poised to be a South Korean feature that looks at the effects a man suffers when he becomes a human-fish hybrid.

The film is called Collective Invention, and marks the feature debut of South Korean filmmaker Kwon Oh-kwang, who takes on both directorial and scriptwriting duties. Lee Kwang-soo takes on the lead role, with a supporting cast that includes Lee Chun-hee and Park Bo-young.

The film’s synopsis is as follows:

A hapless mutant fish-man becomes a national celebrity, in this hilarious satire from South Korean director Kwon Oh-kwang.

The trailer only briefly touches on the cause of what made the lead character turn into a fish-man hybrid, focusing instead on the effects, both positive and negative, that it has on him and the people around him, as well as society at large.

The film is set to make its World Premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival as part of the Vanguard Programme, with theatrical release dates for the US and Canada yet to be announced. The trailer can be seen below.
