ACF 447: Korean Cultural Service sponsors Korean Movie Night - Free Admission!

Directed by Noh Young-Seok
2008, 116 minutes
New York Premiere

The Korean Cultural Service will be presenting free screenings of Korean films every other Tuesday night from January 12, 2010 until December 14, 2010. The series, coordinated by the director of the KCS, Soo Keun Song, will be shown at the Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick Street, on the corner of Canal Street, one block from the A, C, E and 1 train Canal Street stops.

The first film to be screened, next Tuesday, January 12th, 2010, is Daytime Drinking. Showtime will be at 7:00 PM. Admission is free, but you do have to RSVP to info@koreanculture.org or call 212-759-9550.


One of the rudest things you can do in Korea is turn down a drink. It's like spitting in someone's face. DAYTIME DRINKING is a rapidly escalating farce that tweaks the humiliation-meter up and up and up and up as Hyuk-Jin, newly broken up with his girlfriend, finds himself bullied into drinking an infinite amount of soju in a series of progressively more surreal situations. The debut film from Noh Young-Seok, Drinking became a word-of-mouth hit in Korea and has played dozens of film festivals around the world. With a vibe somewhere between Jim Jarmusch's Stranger than Paradise and Broken Lizard's Beerfest, the only thing dry about this flick is its humor.
