The Korea Society joins the newly renovated Museum of the Moving Image in presenting Hong Sang-soo’s entertaining Hahaha, a deceptively light romantic comedy, which won the Un Certain Regard at Cannes 2010.

A filmmaker on the skids plans to move to Canada to meet a film-critic friend. During a drinking session, they decide to share memories of trips they took to the same seaside town.

This special screening will take place in the new 267-seat theater at the Museum of the Moving Image at 35th Avenue & 37th Street in Astoria.
