Free Korean Film Festival starts tomorrow

Posted Wednesday 18 Oct 2017

Catch some Korean classics at Auckland's Academy Cinema, starting tomorrow! Bought to you by the Korean Consulate and Korean Cinerama Trust, the Korean Film Festival is free, but don't dawdle because tickets are 'first in first served' on the day. Here's a taster of what's on offer:

Starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, Joon-Ho Bong's Okja is the heartwarming tale of a girl and her giant mutant pig, brought to life through a mix of digital effects and puppetry.

A young girl is snatched away from her father by a horrifying giant monster that emerges from the River Han to wreak havoc on Seoul. Her entire family sets out to locate the beast and bring their little girl back home to safety in South Korean director Bong Joon-ho's big-budget feature, The Host.

From director Je-yong Lee comes My Brilliant Life, a story about a teenager with a rare genetic disorder rising to national fame.
