The Korea Society in New York hosts an interesting Q and A session with Director Bong Joon-ho (Memories of Murder, The Host, and Mother). Director Bong deals with modern Korea's social and political issue with the frame of popular genre films (thriller, monster fims, and so on). Hope this information is helpful.
Korean Film in Focus: A Conversation with Director Bong Joon-Ho
Director Bong Joon-ho has rapidly become one of the most powerful creative and commercial forces in the Korean film industry. After releasing the critically acclaimed Barking Dogs Never Bite and Memories of Murder, Bong stepped into the international spotlight with his 2006 monster movie The Host. Throughout his films, Bong has forged an unmistakable style that fuses the inner realities of contemporary Korea—especially the shame, guilt, and trauma left over from the democratic movement of the 1980s—with all the power and fun of genre movies. His new film Mother, set for U.S. release in March, utilizes this powerful style in the service of a murder mystery.
Join us on Thursday, February 25, for a conversation with Bong Joon-ho about his filmmaking method and his career in the Korean movie industry. The evening will include a special preview of clips from the upcoming Mother.
