Exhibition to honor a renowned director
Under the title “Now and Then” two art-house theaters - CGV Arthouse and Cinecube - will head up the event, which includes screenings and discussion sessions with Hong at three Seoul-based theaters and one in Busan.
The screening events will showcase nine of Hong’s films including the award-winning “Our Sunhi” (2012) and “Oki’s Movie” (2010), as well as his latest works “Hill of Freedom” (2014) and “Right Now, Wrong Then” (2015).
“Right Now, Wrong Then,” which opens nationwide on Sept. 24, won the top prize at the recent Locarno International Film Festival, where the film’s lead actor, Jung Jae-young, also nabbed the award for Best Actor.
Hong will participate in four discussion sessions, where he will take questions from the audience about three of his films: “Oki’s Movie,” “The Day He Arrives” and “Right Now, Wrong Then.”
The event will run through Sept. 30 at the Apgujeong-dong, southern Seoul, and Seomyeon, Busan, branches of CGV Arthouse as well as at Cinecube located near Gwanghwamun in central Seoul.
From Oct. 15 to 21, the exhibition will resume at the CGV Arthouse Myeong-dong branch in central Seoul.
