Sadly this screening and talk clashes with a performance in the Festival in Korean Dance. But there is a subsequent theatrical release (details of screening times here) you can catch the film on MUBI in July.
Return to Seoul preview + director screentalk
In this emotionally charged and vibrant film from Davy Chou, a young French woman returns to Korea for the first time since her adoption.
A surprising and deliciously sleek movie, Return To Seoul follows Freddie (Park Ji-min), who, on-a-whim, travels to Korea, where she’s persuaded into seeking out her biological family. This is only the start of her journey – where she ends up, is far less expected.
A transient search for identity, Return To Seoul is a beautiful portrait of Korea, and a passionate search for belonging in a place that is foreign. Film critic Wendy Ide hosts a ScreenTalk with director Davy Chou after the screening.
