Christmas in August
Christmas in August – a classic from the 1990s – at the KCC this month

Here are the events I know about for December.


  • The British Museum is holding a screening of family films on Saturday 6 May. In an interesting double bill, we have Marathon (2004) – a cut above your average feelgood sporting movie – and Wedding Day (1956)
  • The KCC’s twice-a-month screenings continue. Christmas in August is the final screening of 2008, on 11 December.
  • For DVD addicts, Guard Post gets a Blu-ray release on 29 December


  • The Creation from Tradition exhibition at the KCC wraps up on 4 December. There’s an evening talk on 2 December
  • The next KCC show, “Entry Forms” – of young Korean artists in the UK – commences on 9 December.
  • Landslide continues at I-MYU until 20 December, featuring landscape artists from the East including Sea-hyun Lee
