Women Direct. Korean Indies! – Korean Women Independent Film Series (2022)

Venue: Louis Koo Cinema, Hong Kong Arts Centre  
Date: 2022.06.24 - 2022.08.13
Price: HK$80 / HK$64*  

Encouraged by the welcoming response from our audiences last year, the Hong Kong Arts Centre and the Seoul Independent Film Festival continue to bring you indie films by Korean women filmmakers! The liberal and ambitious spirit of Korean film development has allowed its creators to explore a great variety of stories and styles, and women are taking the stage to express themselves with films that are more widely available on global film distribution and festival circuits, gaining recognition and enriching different cultures. 

This year, our selection carries on with telling stories of Korean women of different generations and their life choices – overcoming misfortune and stigmas to bring about new discoveries, enlightenments and connections with the hope of addressing realities that do not only involve women, but everyone – such as women’s changing priorities in their role, the phenomenon of holojok (the growing number of people who prefer to be left alone in one-person households), ageism, sexism, labour exploitation, historical tragedies, etc.
