Date : 2018.12.08.Sat ~ 12.16.Sun

Marking the centenary of the first Korean film (made in 1919), Korean Film Archive and British Film Institute will present treasures from their respective archives. In February 2019 BFI Southbank and KCCUK in London will screen every known surviving Korean film made before 1945 – many showing in the UK for the first time – while Korean audiences will be able to see BFI National Archive restorations of classic British films. The programme of 11 British films will include one of Alfred Hitchcock’s finest silent films THE RING (1927) and the BFI’s latest restoration, DISTANT VOICES, STILL LIVES (Terence Davies, 1988), and will screen at the Korean Film Archive (KOFA) in Seoul between 8th and 16th of December. Alongside a number of the screenings, BFI and BFI LFF programmer Kate Taylor, will give a short introduction on each title. Additionally, Taylor will give a public presentation on 15 December outlining the work of BFI National Archive to preserve, restore and make accessible British film heritage.
