The 5th Cinema Digital Seoul Film Festival (CINDI) opens on Wednesday night with the Korean debut of Hong Sang-soo’s latest THE DAY HE ARRIVES. The festival runs for one week and features a lineup of many Korean films along with a few acclaimed international auteurs such as Catherine Breillat’s THE SLEEPING BEAUTY, Nuri Bilge Ceylon’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA, Kevin MacDonald’s LIFE IN A DAY, and a short film from Apichatpong Weerasethakul. There will also be a screening of Park Chan-wook’s iphone film NIGHT FISHING and of the restored Kim Ki-young film THE BOXES OF DEATH from 1955. Following the Jeonju model, there is a cine-class with British film scholar Ian Christie and French scholar Alain Bergala and a master class with Im Kwon-taek, who will be screening his film HANJI. Kim Ki-duk’s ARIRANG is screening but apparently without subtitles.
