About the Film:

Part of Korean Cinema • 한국 영화제

Directed by Jeong Ga-young. South Korea. 2017. 85 min. Korean with English subtitles. Starring Geong Ga-Young,Park Jong-Hwan, and Hyung Seul-woo.

While researching for a screenplay, a young female filmmaker interviews a male friend over a long night of drinking, asking him alarmingly frank questions about his relationships and sex life. As their conversation gets more personal, her true agenda emerges. Writer-director Jeong Ga-young also stars as the sassy woman who reverses the male gaze in her delightfully humorous, deceptively simple chamber piece. Offering a female counterpoint to the work of Hong Sang-soo, Jeong boldly challenges sexual politics by crafting a refreshing, much-needed expression of female empowerment.

Join us for introductions and post-screening Q&As with filmmaker Jeong Ga-young.

About filmmaker Jeong Ga-young: A graduate of the Korea National University of Arts, Jeong Ga-young directed several short films before she self-financed her first feature, the black-and-white Bitch on the Beach(2016), in which she also played the titular and confrontational lead. Her sophomore film Hit the Night, screening at NYAFF, won her the Vision-Director’s Award at the Busan International Film Festival. While her simple style deliberately recalls the work of Hong Sangsoo, Jeong’s unique recipe—rebellious, smart, sexually frank and mildly melancholic with a spicy dash of feminism—proves her an exciting new voice to watch in South Korean cinema.
