Hong Sang-soo; Kim Min-hee Week: June 29-July 5!
Opens Jun 29, 2018
The South Korean filmmaker Hong Sang-soo (Hill of Freedom) is
among the most exciting and prolific directors working today. His films
employ ingenious structures and wry humor as they explore the trials of
their frequently inebriated subjects. This past year Hong released three
of his best received films one after another — all featuring Kim
Min-hee (The Handmaiden), one of the most exciting actors to
emerge in recent years. Because Hong's films share thematic interests
and techniques, it's a rich and rewarding experience to watch them in
close proximity to one another. For that reason, Ragtag is attempting an
experiment: over a week, we'll present three of his latest films once a
day. The order will shuffle, and if you see two throughout the week (or
in one night!), show the ticket stubs to our box office to receive a
free pass to the third.
