Masterclass with Director Lee Doo-yong
Throughout his carreer, Lee Doo-yong's films have married artistic achievement with commerical success. He began with the key genre of 1960s ‘Golden Age’ of Korean cinema, melodrama, but soon moved onto taekwondo thrillers inspired by Hong Kong action cinema. Lee also contributed to the creation of new styles of historical drama, including the pastoral erotic genre, while later turning his hand to gritty 1980s versions of melodrama.
The Last Witness (1980), which we are screening at this year’s festival, may be his most powerful film. But others, such as the historical tragedy Spinning the Tales of Cruelty Towards Women (1983) or the witty and sexy Mulberry (1985), are just as highly regarded today. Our masterclass with Lee Doo-yong will be an opportunity to revisit some of the many highlights of his remarkable life and work.
