The Korea Society presents Korean Film In Focus: Director’s Talk with Jeon Kyu-hwan
Monday, October 3 6:00PM Video Clips from ‘Town Trilogy’ & Discussion
Director Jeon Kyu-hwan has garnered international attention since the 2008 debut of Mozart Town, the first in his Town Trilogy. His second film, Animal Town, was lauded by critics and festival attendees. The third installment, Dance Town, earned awards at Berlin and the Pusan International Film Festival. Variety Magazine’s Russell Edwards hailed Dance Town as a “confrontational slice of urban life that plays like a blend of John Cassavetes and Ken Loach with a sharp kimchi taste.” Jeon’s next feature film is Varanasi, currently in pre-production. He addresses The Korea Society on the trilogy, shown as part of the MoMA series, as well as his upcoming feature.
Moderated by Dr. Choi Jung-bong Assistant professor of Cinema Studies, New York University
