Part of a very special double bill night!

The Host (2006, M)

American military pollution of Seoul’s Han river leads to the unwitting creation of a monster, and only the dysfunctional Park clan can take care of it. As the monster’s brutal daylight eruption into Seoul triggers anarchy and a government crackdown, the dim-witted Park Gang-du (Song Kang-ho) and his motley siblings get ever drawn into the mess. One of the great monster movies, giddy in its unpacking of genre and action conventions, The Host was at the time the highest grossing South Korean film of all time and Bong’s international breakthrough.

Women in Motion
This year we are curating a program that spotlights the contributions of women in film.
