Korean Cinema Showcase: Filmmakers of the Future

Oct 28 — Dec 16, 2012

Working with low budgets and mostly unknown actors, directors Kim Joong-hyun, Lee Han, and Lee Sang-woo are creating a new “indie” movement in their country, and fostering Korea’s ever-incerasing prominence on the international festival scene. This trio of films share a focus on the private lives and personal situations of young Koreans, melding them with universal themes of sibling rivalry, generational misunderstanding, and the transition to (and deferment of) adulthood. Together they provide an excellent starting point to glimpsing a new generation of talent emerging in Korea.

Presented in collaboration with the Korea Society.
