What: Kimchi, Drinks, and a Movie with Na Hong-jin
Where: Freer Gallery of Art (Independence Avenue at 12th Street SW, Washington, DC 20560) Metro: Smithsonian
When: Friday, April 20; reception begins at 6pm, screening of "The Chaser" at 7pm
Na Hong-jin's films "The Chaser" and "The Yellow Sea" established him as one of Korea's premier action filmmakers, winning him multiple Best Director awards at Korea's top film competitions by age 38. Today, his films are reaching an international audience through major distribution in North America by IFC Films and 20th Century Fox's World Cinema. He visits the Freer and AFI Silver Theatre to introduce and discuss both films, April 20-22.
""The Chaser" is an expert serial-killer film", raves Roger Ebert in the Chicago Sun-Times, "and a poster child for what a well-made thriller looked like in the classic days. ... This is drama, and it is interesting". When one of cop-turned-pimp Jung-ho's girls goes missing, he thinks it's a rival moving in on his territory, but the truth turns out to be much more sinister. Full of suspense, inventive action scenes, rich characters, and charismatic performances, "The Chaser" is a thrill ride directed "with muscle and verve" (Variety). Intended for mature audiences due to graphic violence and adult situations.
