The third Pan-Asia Film Festival hosted by Asia House looks to be a fascinating and eclectic display of modern cinema from across Asia.
The festival launched earlier this week with a screening of Japanese Norwegian Wood. If you missed this, though, do not dismay! There are still a vast array of films to check out, including both of the Korean movies on the agenda.
Apologies for the short notice- Hong Sangsoo’s Hahaha is being shown at the Apollo Cinema tomorrow at 7.30pm. This won the Un Certain Regard award at Cannes, and is set to be a hit with audiences here in London. The premise is that of two old friends reflecting on times gone by, with interweaving storylines and dry witted humour.
Sona, the Other Myself will be screened at Asia House on Monday 7th March. This is a South Korean / Japanese documentary which follows director Yang Yonghi’s family situation, divided between Korea and Japan. This is sure to be a sentimental, moving and highly personal exploration. It should also be well worth staying for the post-film discussion after.
Why stop at these though? This festival is a great opportunity to discover new talent and film favourites.
