Korea exports lots of blockbusters overseas but, just like in America, its best, funniest, strangest and most fascinating films are produced independently. This new series features the best new indie films from Korea that have won awards and blown away audiences around the world. The first film to be shown is:
South Korea, 2009, 107 minutes

North American Premiere
A film festival favorite featuring two powerful lead performances from Yoo Da-In and Yoo Yun-Suk, RE-ENCOUNTER won a fistful of awards around the world and became a major indie word-of-mouth success when it was released theatrically in Korea. Hyehwa is a veternarian’s assistant living a quiet life when suddenly her high school sweetheart reappears one day and tells her that the child they thought died when he got her pregnant at 18 is still alive. Lyrical and intimate, it’s a movie that sees two people tear themselves up in quiet desperation.
