As a fan of world cinema, London offers a veritable feast of film festivals. The London Korean Film Festival is one of many celebrating contemporary works from South Korea. I’ve written before about how Korean cinema is often cited as the most exciting and interesting currently on the world stage and I’m eagerly awaiting it.
The Man From Nowhere
Some of the highlights from the festival include The Man From Nowhere by Lee Jeong-Beom which is showing on Friday, November 5th at the Odeon Leicestersquare.
I Saw The Devil
I Saw The Devil by Kim Jee-Woon which will be shown on Saturday November 6th again at the Odeon Leicestersquare.
Finally, The Housemaid by Im Sang-Soo which is showing at the ICA on Sunday, November 14th. If you have a passing interest in cinema, I think it might be worth trying to attend one of the many screenings over the course of the festival.
