KOREAN CINEMA (1995) [Feature]

Korea (MIFF 1995 , Buried Treasures - The Century of Cinema)


The film is founded on perception of the very close connection between Korea's modern history and the development of Korean cinema. Jang Sun-Woo's view of history negotiates its way around all the trip-wires that criss-cross both the country and its cinema. He questions what Korea was, is and could be, illuminating the many missing pages in Korean film history. Most importantly the film is a celebration of the cine­ma—past and pre sent—which have tried to over­come all the circumscriptions of film censorship. A Fitting companion piece to The Taebek Moun­tains and Jang Sun-Woo's new feature, To You From Me.
