There’s been quite a lack of Korean movies this year, so I was quite excited when it was time for São Paulo’s International Film Festival to start, since they always screen some flicks made in South Korea. Lee Sang-woo’s fictional work Barbie (2011), Tae Jun-seek’s documentary Mother (2011) and Lee Dae-hee’s animation Padak (2012) were the chosen ones and I’m really looking forward to see them all.
The best thing about this selection is the variety; I’ve never seen a Korean documentary before and this is as good an opportunity as any other. And they’ll be screened quite a few times each, which increases my chances of being able to catch all three. If you’re in the area, be sure to go watch one (or all) of them! Movie times here.
Last year I got to watch the four Korean movies being shown and then talked a bit about it here. Click to see how things went down!
