Recording: Screen talk with Lee Chang-dong at BFI London Film Festival 2018

Lee Chang-dong screen talk

In case like me you couldn’t get tickets to the Screen Talk with Lee Chang-dong as part of the BFI London Film Festival, here’s the recording on the BFI YouTube channel. The interview took place on 20 October 2018, the day of an anti-Brexit demonstration in London – which is mentioned more than once in the talk.

Director Lee talks about each of his films in turn, including Moon So-ri’s remarkable performance in Oasis, and finishing with Burning, which had its UK premiere at the festival the previous day.

The film will get a theatrical release in the UK on 1 February 2019.
