Pluto (Su-Won Shin, 2012): ICA Cinema, 9pm


This South Korean movie (a Crystal Bear winner at the Berlin Film Festival) screens at the ICA until June 17th. Full details here.

Here is the ICA introduction:
Pluto is a story of the extremes that elite high school seniors are prepared to go to guarantee entry into prestigious universities, and asks what could possibly turn an innocent boy into a monster. June, a transfer student into an elite school, is driven to despair by the year’s first examination results. One day he discovers that a mysterious clique of fellow students are sharing secret notebooks, which contain important exam information. In order to get his hands on the notebooks he begs the members of the secret circle to include him. They task him with a series of missions to earn them, with devastating consequences.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
