ExamiNation is a 20min short documentary film about the notorious South Korean college entrance exam, Sooneung (수능). The film demonstrates how one exam can dictate a culture and lifestyle in a country. 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 high school students through a day in the life of one student working toward this exam.
