“Near East Quartet have been a force in Korean music since 2010, juxtaposing elements of contemporary jazz and traditional Korean music with pure sound exploration to create new forms… Kyungso Park is a composer, player and improviser of the gayageum, a traditional Korean stringed instrument that sounds like a cross between a harp, an oud and a theremin. She freely breaks down the borders between traditional and contemporary music…”

“We’re on Jeju Island, though we see nothing of its tourism industry. But in spirit we’re closer to Venice – the Venice of Thomas Mann’s novella Death in Venice (1912), where a middle-aged writer is suddenly, inexplicably struck by the beauty of a young man and finds his whole life upended because of it. The Jeju writer is Hyeon Taekji (Yang Ik-june), a second-rate poet mired in defeatism with a strong-willed wife who’s determined to get pregnant before it’s too late. The boy is Seyun, a dropout from high school who’s the main carer for his ailing father and works daytimes selling sugary American donuts. Hyeon worries that he might be gay, but his wife is scornful and resentful… This screening will feature an introduction by Hannah McGill, freelance writer, film critic and former Artistic Director of Edinburgh International Film Festival.”
