‘STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND’

‘STRANGERS IN A STRANGE LAND’

This programme is curated by Choi Young Jin Eric, film curator at the Korean Film Archive, and Goh Taekyung, film cataloguer based in Seoul, South Korea.


In The Good, The Bad, The Weird (Kim Jee-woon, 2008) and The Yellow Sea (Na Hong-jin, 2010), outlaws wage war against each other against the backdrop of an alien and unforgiving landscape of chaos. This mayhem is mirrored in the films' productions, which are notorious to this day for their gruelling shooting conditions, schedule overruns, and the relentless drive of an auteur determined to see his vision come to life no matter the cost. The end results are thrilling epics of genre cinema that embody a relentless kinetic energy enhanced by the theatrical experience.
