Though set almost entirely within the confines of the notorious Seodaemun Prison, this mostly monochrome feature from writer/director Joe Min-ho (A Million, 2009) uses the incarceration of real-life freedom fighter Yu Gwan-sun (Ko A-sung) to crystallise the ordeals of Korea's occupation by the Japanese.
This screening will be introduced by Jinhee Choi. Jinhee Choi is a Reader in Film Studies at King's College London and currently working on a monograph on girlhood and contemporary South Korean cinema.
