  • A Day Off

    1968. South Korea. Directed by Lee Man-hee. Screenplay by Baek Gyeol. With Shin Seong-il, Jeon Ji-youn, Kim Seong-ok, Kim Sun-cheol. Many narratives in Korean cinema—and perhaps in Korean culture in general—are about the fleeting nature of happiness and an inevitably dark fate. Lee’s portrait of young people in Seoul in the late ’60s is a classic and compelling example of this pervasive black attitude toward life. Print courtesy the Korean Film Archive. In Korean; English subtitles. 76 min.

In the Film exhibition Yeonghwa: Korean Film Today, 2011
