These trailers feature the early work of Bong Joon-Ho, which was screened at AFS Cinema in January 2018. The series trailer was submitted for competition at Sundance's Art House Convergence. Films included:
-BARKING DOGS NEVER BITE
-MEMORIES OF MURDER
Bong Joon-Ho’s emergence as a major voice in international cinema has coincided with the emergence of his homeland South Korea as a cultural force. For our Essential Cinema series this January we present his first four features, which range from the tiny observations and subversive comedy of BARKING DOGS NEVER BITE to the big-budget monster attack movie THE HOST. We are proud to present these films of a contemporary master who is still rising in prominence and proficiency with each new film.
