Special Focus Forum: A Century of Korean Cinema

Forum Image Website

What is the first Korean film ever made? What it is ‘traditional’ Korean filmmaking and what defines its characteristics? What has shaped the tone and voice of each decade and its most notable titles? Part One of the Forum will see film critic Darcy Paquet tracing the origins and the legacy of Korean film classics to Korean ‘new wave’ and contemporary school of filmmakers, to unwrap the cultural and contextual specifics.

In Part Two, fellow film critic Yoo Un-seong will present a case study of the Korean Cinema of the 1990s, taking an indepth look at how the film industry has changed, and the new school of filmmaking and film consumption has shaped and informed each other.

The Forum will conclude with a conversation between the two guest speakers and time for questions and comments from the audience.
