RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN

DIRECTOR: Hong Sang-Soo - SOUTH KOREA

Film director Ham arrives in Suwon a day early for a screening and speaking engagement. Roaming about, he meets a much younger artist named Yoon and they spend the day together in conversation, winding up at a café where things turn awkward. Hong then rewinds the story, telling it again with subtle differences and a different outcome, playfully playing with the alluring possibility of love going down two different paths, one bitter, one sweet. Winner of the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival, Hong’s meditation on male behavior, social graces, and the complexity of communication provides compelling viewing. (121...

SONGS FROM THE NORTH

DIRECTOR: Soon-Mi Yoo - SOUTH KOREA

An intimate essay, Songs from the North provides a deep look at the enigma of North Korea.

THE THRONE

DIRECTOR: Lee Joon-ik - SOUTH KOREA

 “There are kings who have killed their own brothers and nephews to preserve the dynasty.” These words are spoken by the 16th-century Korean monarch Yeongjo, unaware of the grave irony that he will one day have his own son put to death in The Throne, an outstandingly crafted period drama that recounts a famous historical outrage with a sense of empathy as potent and measured as its anger. Led by a towering performance from Song Kang-ho, but well cast down to the last courtier and concubine, this is a gripping return to Joseon-dynasty intrigue . . .stranding two men on opposite...
