Starting next Thursday, Jan. 12th and continuing until the end of February is one of the best events of the year for Seoul cinephiles: The Cinematheque Friends Film Festival. Every year, numerous Korean directors, actors and other supporters of the institute select a film to screen, and usually arrange a day in which to discuss the film as well. Unfortunately, most of this is in Korean and without translators, but it is still a great chance to see a wide and eclectic selection from cinema history. This year’s festival includes 33 films, many of which are in English or with subtitles. The full list is below, in my order of anticipation, with links and screening dates/times. The link to the cinematheque website is here.
This list includes only the films in English or listed as having English subtitles:
Hitler, A Film from Germany (Hans-Jurgen Syberberg, 1977) A rare chance to see this seven-hour epic on the rise and fall of the Nazis, a film usually cited as one of the masterpieces of the New German Cinema but rarely screen or seen even by devote film fans. It is divided into four parts and screening on two different days in case you can’t handle the whole thing in one day.
