Sept 19-Oct 2
South Korea is one of the world’s cinematic powerhouses, with a booming domestic industry and an ever-widening sphere of influence, in which independent and mainstream films consistently receive international acclaim and recognition. As part of the museum’s monthlong celebration of Korean arts and culture featuring the exhibition Splendor and Serenity: Korean Ceramics from the Honolulu Museum of Art, we present contemporary Korean cinema, from new festival favorites to unsung gems.
