Join us for a very rare screening of Jang Sun-woo’s Bad Movie, also known as Timeless, Bottomless Bad Movie (1997), a transgressive piece of cinéma vérité that turns its lens onto the homeless and runaway teens of ’90s Seoul as they sniff glue, commit random acts of violence, and feel a profound sense of loss in a society that has left them behind.
The screening will feature new English subtitles by Emily Bowles that help recontextualise key scenes and rework the original mistranslations. Emily Bowles will also introduce the screening, which will be followed by an afterparty.
Doors: 7 pm
Screening: 7:30 pm
We’ll also have an interlude halfway through the film, owing to the length of the film.
