Retrospective Invites Key Korean Film Figures
Established by husband and wife partners Jamie SHIM and LEE Eun twenty years ago, production house Myung Films has represented the Korean cinema by discovering and producing key directors and their features.
In celebration of the commemorable twentieth birthday, ‘Myung Films Retrospective: Memories of Twenty Years’ will be held at Myung Films Art Center from July 24 to September 16, screening 36 titles that the company has produced since 1995.
On each weekend, the retrospective will be attended by key directors, actors and critics who have worked with Myung Films—actors SONG Kang-ho (Joint Security Area/JSA), MOON So-ri (Forever the Moment), PARK Won-sang (Waikiki Brothers), BAE Suzy and LEE Je-hoon (Architecture 101), and seventeen directors including OH Sung-yoon (Leafie, a Hen Into the Wild), BOO Ji-young (Cart), KIM Jee-woon (The Quiet Family) and CHUNG Ji-young (Unbowed) will host talk sessions in turns after screenings of their titles in the program.
Local critics KIM Young-jin, JUNG Sung-il, journalist Una BECK, and Cine21 editor in chief JU Sung-chul also join forces with Myung by hosting talk session ‘Critics Choice,’ where they will discuss their choice of Myung Film works such as The Contact, The Isle, Bloody Tie, and Joint Security Area/JSA.
