Press

  • Twitch Film
    "...a compelling look at a common but disastrous problem at the root of modern Korean society - competitive education."
  • Screen Daily
    “One of the documentaries that is sure to resonate at this year’s Busan International Film Festival, Reach For The Sky is as gripping as it is informative as it cleverly explores the Korean education system; Reach for the Sky remains constantly engaging, even after the exam is over and results come out.”
