A young man named Yeong-ho seeks to navigate his way between his parents’ wishes and expectations, as his girlfriend leaves to study in Berlin.
This film signals a new stylistic era from the Korean filmmaker, where the formal qualities of Hong’s previous films are being practiced with renewed discipline. Being one of contemporary cinema’s most illustrious directors, Hong Sangsoo has seen his recent output emboldened by radical filmmaking techniques—largely in step with his embrace of efficient small-scale digital filmmaking. Sponsored by the Alberta Cinema Society. With a brief introduction before the screening.
