ExamiNation by Judy Suh

Badge finalist Finalist for The Film Skillet 2013 Documentary Film Contest in Documentary

ExamiNation is a short documentary film about the notorious South Korean college entrance exam, Sooneung (수능). Can one exam dictate a culture and lifestyle in a country?
The film shows you it's possible. Almost all high school students in Korea prepare for this rigorous and extremely competitive 8-hour exam that happens once a year. On this day, the whole country will pause for these students to take this "life-changing exam." The film captures the experience of Korean high school students through a day in the life of one particular student working toward this exam.

I thoroughly enjoyed how organic this documentary felt. By the end I felt I had become good friends with Bitna because she had let me in on so much personal information about her life. This succeeds in being very personable and genuine rather than highly negative and pessimistic. Thank you.
