March/April 2014 Programme:


Crime thrillers that pack a punch and heist hits with a comedic twist as we present both the dark alleys and light-hearted romps of Korean cinema. The crime thriller is a genre that the Korean industry has become widely known for today, and this is your chance to observe a variety of films that play with the conventions of that genre. But first make sure to strap in!

Extraordinary tales of everyday families that focus on Korean communities both locally and internationally. Features stories from Korean-American filmmakers Kim So-yong (Treeless Mountain) and Christine Yoo (Wedding Palace), Korean-Canadian documentarian Emmanuel Moonchil Park (My Place), and a former graduate of the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, Jeong Yoon-cheol (Marathon). The films ask us questions of family and identity in this multicultural and multinational society.
