National Security Namyeong dong 1985

From Monday, August 5th though Sunday, 11th, The Korea Society and MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art) co-presents ‘Focus on Korea’ as part of ‘ContemporAsian’ film series which presents many contemporary Asian films from pan-Asian countries. The series selects critically lauded Korean films, highlighting current social issues, injustice and human nature. The films maximize distinctive narrative skills from some of Korea’s insightful and penetrative renegade filmmakers. Three directors will be presented: Dir. Chung J-young (National Security), Dir. Lee Ji-seung (Azooma) and Dir. Jeon Soo-il (El Condo Pasa). National Security (New York premier) garnered acclaim by The Hollywood Reporter as ‘one such picture from South Korea, an entirely sincere and dignified effort by Chung Ji-young.’ Screen Daily commented that ‘El Condo Pasa (New York Premier) is a compelling addition to Jeon Soo-il’s body of work’ noting that the film ‘mirrors the Themes of religion, grief and forgiveness found in Lee Chang-dong’s Secret Sunshine (2007).’ Director Lee’s Azooma had accolades from Beyond Hollywood, “Azooma is certainly a very angry film, though justifiably so, and it’s all the more powerful for the fact that it’s very well made.’

National Security (Namyeong-dong 1985) 2012 (106 min, T2) directed by Chung Ji-young. This film is based on the memoir written by the late Kim Geun-tae, a famous politician and the former Minister of Health and Welfare in Korea. Kim was captured, imprisoned, and tortured for 22 days at a specially designed facility located at Namyoung-dong on September 1985.

Event schedule: Monday, August 5, 2013 @7:00 p.m./Tuesday, August 6, 2013 @4:00 p.m./Wednesday, August 7, 2013 @7:00 p.m./Thursday, August 8, 2013 @4:00 p.m./Friday, August 9, 2013 @4:00 p.m. *Filmmaker Present /Saturday, August 10, 2013 @1:30 p.m
