Capital Celluloid 2019 - Day 314: Sun Nov 10

Three Friends (Yim Soon-rye, 1996): Rio Cinema, 3.30pm

This 35mm presentation is part of the 2019 Korean Film Festival. You can find full details here.

Korean Film Festival introduction:
The first feature from one of the most celebrated women directors from South Korea, Lim Soon-rye, is a melancholic and insightful coming-of-age tale which captures perfectly the lives of average twenty-year-olds living in Seoul in the late 1990s. Lim, whose most recent work Little Forest (2018) was presented at the LKFF last year, portrays the three boys with remarkable warmth and humour without falling into sentimentality. Although there are plenty of laughs to be had in Three Friends, the underlying uncertainty that these young men face in their transition to adulthood echoes the plight of many young people more than two decades on from the film’s release. This screening will be introduced by Hyun Jin Cho.
