Film Career of Korea

The 14th London Korean Film Festival opens tonight as a celebration marking the centenary of film-making in Korea in the aptly-chosen historic Regent Street Cinema, wthere the freres Lumiere first screened films in Great Britain.  Although the popular annual event has a varied selection of UK and international premieres, with thematic sections focussing on documentary, animation and video, the choice for the Opening Gala for the first time has fallen on a modern classic The Seashore Village,dating from 1965, in a newly restored print, which even more remarkably will be introduced by its 91-year-old director, Kim Soo-yong., who joins a delegation of directors, critics and archivists to present prpgrammes at a dozen or so London venues until 14th with some of the films touring to screens in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast, Bristol, Manchester and Nottingham until 24th November 2019.
