An email from out of the blue today, advising of an upcoming screening at the Royal College of Art. Strange place for a screening, and I await to hear more about whether it’s part of a series; and why. And the choice of film is a little odd: A Little Monk. Not one of the films which leap out as something which has to be seen. But on further investigation it’s had some good reviews at koreanfilm.org, by Kim Kyu Hyun and Anthony Leong, so I’ll try and go along. It’s on 28 April at 7pm.
Screenings elsewhere: on trying to track down an academic who’s got a project going on Japanese contexts in Korean film, I came across a Korean film club at Cambridge. The season for the lent term is finished, but there may be more I guess.
