Cinema on the Park is in full swing presenting stories of Displaced Youth this November. This FREE weekly Korean film night takes place every Thursday at the Korean Cultural Office in Sydney, features English subtitles, and even offers a variety of Korean snacks and drinks each week. What more could you ask for?
Thursday Nov 21st, Korea’s official submission for the Best Foreign Language film at the Academy Awards, JUVENILE OFFENDER, will have its Sydney premiere.
This moving family drama gives a darker look at teenage life in Korea, and is notable for the powerful performances from Seo Young-joo (Moebius) and pop-star Lee Jung-hyun (Night Fishing), who play the delinquent teen and single mother respectively.
The November line-up will round out with Kim Ki-duk’s THE BOW on Nov 28th, a beautifully still and almost silent film that tells the tale of an old man’s relationship with a young girl who is promised to him as his future wife.
The Bow screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival and is a must for fans of Korea’s most acclaimed director.
