Disordered Narrative Time of Hong Sangsoo’s “Hill of Freedom” (2014)

This study analyzes the disordered narrative time of Director Hong Sangsoo's film, Hill of Freedom (2014) and discusses the narrative method and signification of this work. This study aims to analyze the order in which the film narration has transformed the story of the film through the Russian formalists' concept of Syuzhet-Fabula and to analyze what thematic consciousness such a narration reveals. In the process of exploring the signification of the film narration, this study refers to Edward Branigan's theory and David Bordwell's cognitive theory, which describes the process in which the audience reads the narrative through story information control in film narrative. Through this, this study would describe the unique structure of the narrative time of "Hill of Freedom" and investigate how Director Hong Sangsoo induces the audience's reception of narrative through such experience of narrative time.
