ACF 074: To The Starry Island - Free Screening at The Korea Society

To The Starry Island / Geu seome gago shibda
Directed by Park Kwang-soo
1993, 101 minutes
With Ahn Sung-ki, Moon Seong-keun, and Shim Hye-jin

When he brings his father's body back to their native Kwisong Island for burial, Moon Chae-ku encounters the opposition of many of the islanders, still furious because of a political incident that occurred there decades earlier. Moon's predicament leaves him time to consider the turbulent events of his father's life, events which in many ways reflect the experiences of all Koreans in this tragically divided land.

The film will screen at The Korea Society on February 21st, 2008 at 6:30 PM. Tickets are $5 for members, $10 for non-members.

The Korea Society is located at 950 Third Avenue, 8th Floor, in mid-town Manhattan.
