The film serves as a thought-provoking parable, depicting the gradual descent of its characters into merciless tribalism, mirroring contemporary global events in an eerie manner.

“Concrete Utopia” has received the honor of being chosen by the Korean Film Council (KOFIC) to represent South Korea in the race for the Best International Feature Film category at the 2024 Academy Awards. Additionally, it is set to make its North American premiere and gala presentation at the 48th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 9.
