Oki's Movie - US PREMIERE
US THEATRICAL PREMIERE! One week run of documentary narrative hybrid "Oki's Movie".
Dir. Hong Sang-soo, 2010, 80 min.
Documentary filmmaking is the secret star of the elegant narrative film 'Oki's Movie', a quartet of interlocking vignettes by Korean auteur director Hong Sang-soo and one of the most important films in his oeuvre. An official selection of the Venice, Toronto and New York Film Festivals, 'Oki's Movie' follows a young woman as she hikes Seoul's Mount Acha twice, a year apart, accompanied by different boyfriends: first a fellow student, then a professor. She documents the trips and then edits together corresponding locations on the mountain: the parking lot, a small pavilion, a wooden bridge; her juxtapositions are revelatory, both of her relationship with each and of the power of cinema. "Magnificentand also magnificently constructed," writes Richard Brody of 'Oki's Movie' in <em>The New Yorker
