Filming Against the Odds: Five Films, Four Women Directors from Korea
The first film in our KFN: Filming Against The Odds Season will be the UK premiere of touching family drama Daughter In Law, the directorial debut from Korean acting legend Choi Eun-hee. This remarkable film also boasts an award winning performance from Choi in the central role.
Daughter In Law will be live on the KCCUK YouTube channel from Friday 14 May, 5pm. Set a reminder by clicking the link above.
Our new series of Korean Film Night screenings is devoted to the work of four of the small number of women film-makers who managed to create feature films between the middle and end of the last century: from Park Nam-ok’s pioneering The Widow from 1955 to Lee Seo-gun’s offbeat fantasy Rub Love of 1998. On its way, the series offers a much-belated UK premiere for two films by Choi Eun-hee from the 1960s.
KFN: Filming Against the Odds starts on 14 May with Choi Eun-hee's Daughter-In-Law. Films will be hosted on the KCCUK YouTube channel and released every two weeks.
All film screenings are organised by the Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK). For more information on the KCCUK and its many events, including film, music, visual arts, literature and more, please visit the website here.
