This week of Korean culture in the UK has two events lined up for this Saturday in London and Glasgow.

12th DECEMBER: Changing Landscapes: The New Korean Cinema Movement on Screen: White Badge

Fancy a look into the politics and history of South Korea via film? Look no further! Birkbeck Cinema is hosting a special screening of the war film “White Badge”. The film is significant as it helped mark the start of the New Korean Cinema Movement. Relaxation of censorship in the country in the late 1980s had given aspiring filmmakers the opportunity to tell stories and address issues that have been previously forbidden to them.
