Cine-cafe invites director

2006/04/05 | Permalink | Source

Director Jeong Jae-eun of last summer's inline-skater movie The Aggressives, was present at an English-subtitled screening of her 2001 feature debut, Take Care of My Cat. She was there to answer questions from the curious crowd of expat wives who gather every second and fourth Wednesday of the month to watch Korean films. The event called 'Cine Cafe Mornings' provides subtitled screenings of Korean movies along with tea and coffee in a cozy and private theater at the Samsung Raemien Cultural Center in Anguk-dong.

Organized by the Europe Korea Foundation, the Cine Cafe was designed to help foreigners become more familiar with Korean culture through the medium of film. Past screenings have included such diverse films as Oasis, Untold Scandal, Memories of Murder, You are my Sunshine, and the British documentary on the North Korean Mass Games, A State of Mind. Each film is given a brief but helpful introduction by Cine Cafe host, Anne Ladouceur.

At last month's showing of Take Care of My Cat, a film that focuses on the lives of five young Korean women, director Jeong was impressed by the intelligent and observant questions posed to her by the all-female audience.

The next event on April 12 at 9:30 a.m. will present the movie Ogu: A Hilarious Morning, a comedy featuring traditional elements of Shamanism. Tickets are 10,000 won and all proceeds go to local charities supported by EKF. To register for the screening contact Anne or call the EKF office at (02) 725-0381.
