Series Five: Remembering Park Cheol Soo: A Korean Filmmaking Legend

When prolific Korean director Park Cheol Soo died earlier this year after being hit by a drunk driver, film fans around the world took solace in the fact that while he was gone, his amazing, truly independent masterpieces would live on forever. As huge fans of his work, the Korean Cultural Service pays tribute to this amazing man by offering up three of his most acclaimed films.

Park Cheol Soo led the Korean wave throughout the late 90s, influenced by the time he spent in Manhattan and the indie film scene here. Having popularized Korean cinema worldwide, he also discovered Kim Ki Duk who has changed our perception of Asian film. Taken from us well too soon, Korean Movie Night celebrates the life of Park Cheol Soo starting October 1st… delivering three films guaranteed to move you like never before.

As Autumn tugs at the leaves from Manhattan’s trees and the days become short, warm yourself with the memory of Park Cheol Soo and his cinematic masterpieces – brought to you for free, as always, by your friends at The Korean Cultural Service.

GREEN CHAIR (2003, 98 min)

Ordered to 100 hours of social service for taking a younger lover, Mun-hui meets up with Hyeon, the object of her desire, and becomes engrossed with him yet again. After five passionate days, Mun-hui leaves Hyeon, telling him to remember her as the “odd woman that he met briefly.” Suffering a deep sense of loss, Hyeon eventually receives a call from his lost love – but soon finds himself sharing her with another person. A charming, expertly crafted morality tale, this Sundance Film Festival selection is a powerfully charged erotic masterpiece.

The film will be shown in Korean with English subtitles.

The next free Korean Movie Night screening will be of B.E.D. (2012, 90 min, North American Premiere), on October 29th, 2013.
