Korean Noir at Edinburgh Filmhouse
Event: Korean Noir, Illuminating the Dark Side of Society
Date: 13 March - 10 April (every Tuesday)
Location: Edinburgh Filmhouse
For last year’s 12th edition, the London Korean Film Festival hosted an in-depth Special Focus on ‘Korean Noir’ which included films from the 1960s up until the present day.
This finely curated programme aimed to explore how Korea’s own brand of noir cinema might be understood as a distinct type of film which pays homage to the classic canon of 'Film Noir' whilst retaining its own unique style.
Five notable titles from the programme will be presented in Edinburgh as part of the Korea/UK season, providing audiences with the chance to explore the underbelly of Korean society through cinema’s darkest genre
