Korean Film Nights 2019 Season 2: Love Without Boundaries
This year’s second season of Korean Film Nights, Love Without Boundaries, invites us to take an even deeper look into the Korean psyche and to open our hearts to love − the kind of love which thrives on the margins of society, that challenges our preconceptions, that shocks us with its intensity and amazes us with its capacity to forgive and transform.
Screenings take place at the Korean Cultural Centre UK and Birkbeck Cinema and are free to attend (booking required)
