The big London Im Kwon-taek retrospective – confirmed screening dates and times

Im Kwon-taek

There’s truly an over-indulgence in K-film over the next few weeks. In between the BFI London Film Festival which features no fewer than six Korean films, and the regular London Korean Film Festival at the beginning of November, we have an Im Kwon-taek retrospective, organised by the KCC in collaboration with the BFI and the ICA. Here’s a list of the screenings so that you know where to blank out your diaries.
