DC hosts Korean film fest

2008/05/30 | 452 views | Permalink | Source

The Korean Film Festival DC 2008 opened already in early April, and is still running until June 12. The festival is organised by the Smithsonian Institute with the assistance of several Korean organisations, including the Korean Film Council (KOFIC).

Tom Vick, programmer, thinks it's "only a slight exaggeration to say that South Korea is in the process of conquering the world with its movies". He praises the diversity in Korean cinema, and speaks of a "wealth of talent and creativity" as the force behind the developments in Korean cinema.

The festival programmed a mix of popular blockbusters, documentaries, animation, and independent films. The films in June are the animation "Empress Chung", "Love is a Crazy Thing", and "The King and the Clown".
