LKFF2017 Final Teaser Screening + Programme Launch
Monday 11 September, 7:30pm, Regent Street Cinema
Exploding onto the screen in a kinetic flurry of hyper-stylised action, Director Jung Byung-gil thrusts his audience into the noir-tinged world of The Villainess, infusing a tale containing many of the hallmarks of modern Korean thrillers with original action elements and an unflinching style that recalls Park Chan Wook’s Oldboy while also pointing towards the female-led narratives offered by Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and Luc Besson’s La Femme Nikita. Released in cinemas nationwide 15 September, this advance screening offers an early look at a film that’s been much talked about since its Cannes debut earlier this year.

Korean Film Nights 2017
Patchworks: Unwrapping My Korean Cinema
Korean Film Nights continues...
Patchworks: Unwrapping My Korean Cinema is the final season of 2017’s Korean Film Nights. The title is a play on Kim hong-joon’s My Korean Cinema (2002–2006), an 8-episode essay film that explored the director’s relationship with the history of Korean cinema.
With each of the 8 episodes tackling a separate facet of the history of Korean cinema, our programme will focus on two episodes within the film: Smoking Women & For the March of Fools. Our programme of six Thursday night screenings will then be further separated into two mini-strands of three nights each. These two mini-strands will be comprised of five features and a short film programme in which My Korean Cinema will be cinematically ‘unwrapped’.
All screenings take place at the Korean Cultural Centre UK and are free to attend (booking required)

La Vie en Rose feels like a Tarantino movie set in a comic book shop. It’s a film that works over many genres, ranging from martial arts to vengeance, from coming-of-age to finding your place in life. Clerks (Kevin Smith: 1994) meets High fidelity (Stephen Frears: 2000) as Seoul’s youth try to create and protect the place and the community they’ve come to love.
