PROGRAM - Special Focus - SONG Gil-han, The Writer of Cinematic Spirit

SONG Gil-han, The Writer of Cinematic Spirit

  • Song Gil-han is a screen writer, who takes an important place in terms of modern Korean cinema history. Especially his works after 1980s such as Jagko, Mandara, Gilsotteum, and Ticket, which were produced in a collaboration with the film director Im Kwontaek, thoroughly encompassed numerous issues including the history of divided territory, redemption of individuals, and social corruption. Besides these films, Tears of the Idol, Village of Haze, and Crying in a Butterfly’s Embrace were good examples of his keen insights as a writer by capturing humans and societies in both macroscopic and microscopic perspectives under the mandatory production system of Korean cinema at the time.

    In order to display paths of this astonishing screen writer, ´SONG Gil-han, The Writer of Cinematic Spirit´ plays twelve films of his work, which ranges from his early films like Only You, A Promise on the Last Day to Gilsotteum, which was the middle of work by collaborating with the director Im Kwontaek, to his late piece, Myong-Ja Akiko Sonia. Especially, Bhiksuni, which was under the production in 1984 and yet, was not completed due to the opposition of buddhist community, would be partially recovered.

    It will be playing for this special occasion.
