Director Lee Myung Se: a Master of Visual Cinematic Arts August 27, 2008

On Friday, Sept. 5, USC will be showing two films directed by Lee Myung Se, namely Duelist and M. Duelist plays at 4pm and will be followed by a Q&A with Lee Myung Se. The Q&A will be followed by a reception, and the reception will be followed by a screening of M. For more details click here.

Due to the fact that it’s at USC and I’m not familiar with the campus or comfortable there, I probably will not go. But it sounds like a fun event. Both films should be watchable. Duelist sounds more plot-driven, M more character-driven. Plot synopses are available at the link in the previous paragraph.

Besides, there’s a reception. Who can object to free food?

The event is cosponsored by these organizations:the School of Cinematic Arts, East Asian Studies Center, Center for International Studies, East Asian Languages & Culture, East Asian Library, Korean Cultural Center of Los Angeles, Korean Film Council, University of Notre Dame.

    It should be a very cool event.
    I’ve been to the previous ones when they had Hong Sang Soo and Kang Je Gyu.
    Lee’s recent films are not very accessible, and are kind of a chore to sit through, but they are so visually stunning that seeing them on the big screen and hearing the guy talk should be a real treat.

    Why did they have to do it on a Friday though….
    I won’t be able to get out of work in time to catch this. Bummer…

    Yeah, I noticed it starts at 4pm. Hard for people with 9-5 jobs to make it then.
