KWK Talk: The Vengeful Ghost in Korean cinema, with Colette Balmain, 6 Aug

Colette Balmain has made Asian Horror cinema – with particular reference to Korea and Japan – something of her speciality, and so her talk as part of Kingston Welcomes Korea comes highly recommended. This is the second of two talks that focus on particular aspects of contemporary Korean culture, the first being Deborah Smith’s literary talk on 4 August.
