Can’t believe May slipped by so quickly. Here’s what I know of for June:

Film

  • This month’s director at the KCC is Lee Jun-ik, with screenings, on successive Thursdays, of King and the Clown (2005), The Happy Life (2007), Sunny (2008) and Battlefield Heroes (2010), the latter being at the Apollo Piccadilly with Director Q&A. Read more on Otherwhere.
  • For those who follow cinema from across the East Sea, there’s a big season of Kaneto Shindo & Kozaburo Yoshimura at the BFI.

Arts

Plenty to choose from this month

Music & K-pop

Everything else

LKL’s Google Calendar is definitely not up to speed with all the above yet. I’ll try to remedy that over the next day or so. I’ve also probably missed a whole bunch of events off the above list. If you know of any, please drop me a line.

  1. Philip, there are three Kim Ki-duk films screening at the ICA as well (Arirang, 3-Iron and Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter…and Spring) plus the documentary Planet of Snail (which won the Best Documentary award at the Rotterdam Film Festival – can’t wait to see it!).

    If you want to go beyond London, the Edinburgh International Film Festival is also screening 3 Korean films at the end of the month. King of Pigs is one, don’t remember the names of the others, but I’ll post details about it on my blog later today.

  2. Thanks. I’d forgotten about the KKD, but didn’t know about Planet of Snail. Although I made it my film of the year last year just from the trailer, I’ve never actually seen it yet. I hope I’m in London at the right time.
