CKS Film Series Continues with “The Seashore Village”

The Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies fall 2011 Kore­an film series con­tin­ues Tues­day, Sep­tem­ber 20, with a show­ing of The Seashore Vil­lage (갯마을), a 1965 fea­ture direct­ed by Kim Su-Young. Cit­ed as the director’s most rep­re­sen­ta­tive lit­er­ary film, it was high­ly praised at the time of its release for sur­pass­ing the pre­vail­ing aes­thet­ic stan­dard of Kore­an films. It por­trays the lives of a group women liv­ing amid pris­tine and unsul­lied nature, sur­viv­ing by their own labor with­out hus­bands to rely on. 

The Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies film series presents exhi­bi­tions on the first and third Tues­day of every month at 6:30 p.m. in the CKS Audi­to­ri­um at 1881 East-West Road on the UH Manoa cam­pus. These events are free and open to the pub­lic. All films are shown with Eng­lish subtitles.

Addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion on The Seashore Vil­lage is avail­able on the Kore­an Film Archive Web site: http://www.koreafilm.org. For more infor­ma­tion on the films being pre­sent­ed in this series, see http://www2.hawaii.edu/~mj23/kfs/.
