As part of K-CINEMA 100, London East Asia Film Festival are bringing Bong Joon-ho’s The Host to the River Thames.
The special screening will take place on Friday 6th September and will include English subtitles. It is also in partnership with Totally Thames, in order to celebrate 100 years of Korean cinema.
The Host tells the story of an American military pathologist in 2000, who orders his assistant to dump 200 bottles of formaldehyde down a drain, which then leads into the Han River. Then, in 2006, a huge creature emerges from the Han River and begins attacking people. It captures Park Gang-du’s daughter and he, a slow-witted young man who runs a snack-bar in the park, must attempt to rescue her.
