The Center for Korean Studies fall 2011 Korean film series continues Tuesday, September 20, with a showing of The Seashore Village (ê°¯ë§ˆì„), 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/.
