Documentary on Kim Ki Duk's influence on Malayalam cinema to be shown in Delhi
In a tribute to Korean director Kim Ki Duk, the Yeonghwa Film Club at the newly-opened Korean Cultural Centre will hold a special session on Jan 25 charting his influence on Malayalam cinema through the documentary, Dear Kim (2009). It will be followed by a talk by Bindu Menon, assistant professor, Lady Shri Ram College for Women.
Drawing its name from the Korean word for film, the Yeonghwa Club will also screen Kim's film Arirang on Jan 18 in an effort to celebrate the director's works. Earlier, the club had held the screening of the art-house director's Pieta that won the Golden Lion award at the 69th Venice International Film Festival and Dream (Bi-mong).
Entry is free to all above 18 years of age with valid photo id.
Arirang, that won the Un Certain Regard prize at the Cannes film festival in 2011, is about Kim's re-enactment of his emotional breakdown of three years after a near-fatal accident on the set of his 2008 film, Dream. In the film, his lead actress was apparently almost killed.
The screenings will be followed by talks, workshops and discussions on Korean cinema and its shifting cultural context within a globalizing world.
The club's film screenings are organised every Friday around monthly themes that focus on film genres, directors and actors. The movies are touted as a sneak peak into one of the most vibrant cinematic cultures in Asia.
