샌프란시스코 영화협회 sffs에서 밀양 密陽 secret sunshine을 소개했다. 조지 루카스 george lucas가 세운 레터맨 디지털 아트센터에서 행사가 열렸는데, 저녁에 처음 가니 찾기가 쉽지는 않더라. 일찍 간 핑계로 좀 헤매고 들어가니 근사한 건물, 세심하게 신경을 쓴 티가 났다. 영화관은 샌프란시스코 현대미술관 sfmoma보다 좀 작은 것 같은데, 시설은 훌륭했다. 방음도 잘 되었고, 불이 꺼지고 화면이 밝아지기까지 깜깜한 기분 🙂
SECRET SUNSHINE: 1.9.08
Director Lee Chang-Dong in attendance
The Film Society is thrilled to present South Korea’s submission for Best Foreign Language Film, Secret Sunshine, directed by Lee Chang-Dong, on January 9 at the Premier Theater, Letterman Digital Arts Center, in the Presidio. Tickets are available now to Film Society year-round members for $9 and to the general public for $11. The New York Film Festival wrote that “Secret Sunshine is that rare movie that possesses the richness and complexity of a great novel, revealing new layers as it unfolds. A recent widow (Jeon Do-Yeon) and her young son adjust to life in a small country town after relocating from Seoul. Then, abruptly and without warning, the film shifts into thriller territory, only to end as a devastating study in human suffering (albeit one with dark comic overtones). Lee Chang-Dong navigates his switchblade reversals of comedy and despair, darkness and light with a master’s grace, as does Jeon in a revelatory performance for which she won the Best Actress prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.” Lee Chang-Dong, who will be in attendance, is an SF International Film Festival veteran, screening Peppermint Candy in 2001 and Green Fish in 1998.
