[HanCinema's News] Korean Film Archive Announces Independence Day Screenings

2019/02/25 | 134 views | Permalink

In honor of Korean Independence Day, which is on March 1st, the Korean Film Archive in the Mapo district of Seoul is planning on showing a litany of Japanese Occupation era films. Peace and Freedom, Regret and Unity.

The screenings will consist of films from as far back as 1959, such as an early biopic of teenage resistance leader Yu Gwan-sun, but also modern films as recent as "MAL-MO-E: The Secret Mission" which released only last month.

The screenings are being billed as a one hundred year anniversary of the March 1st Movement. Of course, this anniversary holds true for the entire country where flags are in abundance in anticipation of the national holiday.

The screenings will be held free of charge. Other films of interest that will be screened include "DongJu: The Portrait of a Poet", "Anarchist from Colony", "Grandmother's Flower", and "The Big Picture". The screenings will continue until March 13th when they will be replaced by a new program.
