A Dirty Carnival

When: 20th March 2018, 5:50pm

Where: Edinburgh Filmhouse

Event Synopsis:

A fictional South Korean filmmaker taps the illicit life of a childhood friend for a successful gangster movie and faces the consequences. The story of a low-level debt-collector who, faced with lack of funds and a sick mother, opportunistically murders his way up the greasy pole, the lead is played by Zo In-seong, one of Korea’s leading actors, who brings real conviction to the role.  Both domestically fraught and the epically blazing in equal measure, it covers ground from land-development corruption to the protagonist’s fragile courtship of a girl who works in a bookshop and hates his gangster lifestyle. Running long at 141 minutes, this is ultimately the story of a desperate man trying and failing to understand himself. Like the karaoke that dots the narrative, he is always singing someone else’s song.

Director: Yoo Ha

Running time: 141mins

Seung Ae Lee: Becoming

When: March 8 – April 7 2018

Where: Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK)

What: As part of the Korea/UK Season, the Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK) presents the solo exhibition of Seung Ae Lee (b. 1979), acclaimed for her meticulously detailed pencil drawings, from 8 March to 7 April 2018 (Preview: 7 March). The exhibition focuses on Lee’s trademark drawing animations that explore the relationships between the drawn line, the imaginative transformation and the moving image.

Lee’s drawing animations are a series of spontaneous pencil drawings that repeat the process of erasing and redrawing on paper, continuously leaving traces of the previous stage. Each stage transforms into the next, with the new movement (or drawing) inspired by the previous stage. Lee’s drawings, developed through autonomous ideas and movements, often depict segregated parts of the body, natural organisms and nostalgic items. The sound effects of percussions complement the visual imagery – and at the same time, the drawings also visually respond to sounds as the percussion becomes the subject of depiction.
