Cert U, 110mins, 1955

Piagol was one of only 15 films released in 1955. Hindsight suggests this year as the beginning of a Golden Age, at least a remarkable decade and a half, for film in South Korea. While the best-known products of the post-Korean War cinema would be predominantly melodramas and/or period films, Piagol attempted something more challenging: a historically informed, though still anti-communist, representation of leftist partisan fighters left stranded in the South after the main phase of the war ended in stalemate and the Armistice of July 1953 confirmed the bloody status quo.

This screening will be introduced by Mark Morris. Mark Morris is a frequest advisor to the London Korean Film Festival and participates reguarly in a wide variety of film events in the UK, Europe and South Korea.
