On the occasion of JeeYoung Lee's exhibition Stage of Mind at the Naughton Gallery, a series of film has been selected to give you a flavour of contemporary South Korean cinema. These films present an unsettling mix of stylish visuals, surreal fantasy, and shocking violence, in which the female characters are portrayed as emblems of salvation, revenge, or social injustice. All film screenings will take place at Queens Film Theatre.
