Echelon Studios acquires Kim Ki-Duk’s Address Unknown and Bad Guy

August 15, 2023

Echelon Studios has acquired award-winning feature films Address Unknown and Bad Guy from critically-acclaimed South Korean writer-director Kim Ki-Duk. Two of the filmmaker’s earlier works, both feature characteristically boundary-challenging shock elements.

Address Unknown offers an uncompromising view of humanity and the dehumanising effects of war, while Bad Guy tows the line between what is right and wrong with an unconventional and uncharacteristic tale of obsession.

Speaking on the acquisition, Sandro Gohoho, President of Licensing and Logistics for Echelon Studios, said: “Kim Ki-Duk is an unparalleled cinematic provocateur and among the most celebrated auteurs. We are very excited to have acquired two of his finest art-house works, continuing our commitment to bring inspiring and innovative cinema to those seeking it.”

Echelon will partner with Kinoscope – a New York based streaming and publication company – for a theatrical screening of Address Unknown on August 23 at NYC’s Maxwell House, followed by a multi-platform VoD release later this year across North America.

The newly HD restored version of both films will join Echelon’s curated library of more than 20,000 titles across all genres, including international films, documentaries, and shorts.
