“When I finish a film, I feel like I have overcome a certain hurdle. It's really good for me as a human being, and I hope that for some people, my films will do the same thing.”

    THE DAY HE ARRIVES

    Hong Sang-soo South Korea, 2011

    South Korean auteur Hong Sang-soo presents a deceptively simple rumination on isolation and desire.

    TALE OF CINEMA

    Hong Sang-soo South Korea, 2005

    The South Korean master of awkwardness Hong Sang-soo is one of our favorite living filmmakers. His cinephile dramedy Tale of Cinema features the director’s signature complex romances and soju-soaked emotions, while following a meta-structure that delightfully points to cinema’s magical powers.

    IN ANOTHER COUNTRY

    Hong Sang-soo South Korea, 2012

    Hong Sang-soo’s playful cinematic triptych makes an inventive and deceptively carefree series of riffs on love, loss, and the many possibilities of life and art. This portrait of modern dating stars the amazing Isabelle Huppert in not one, but three roles!

    WOMAN ON THE BEACH

    Hong Sang-soo South Korea, 2006

    Presented in a new restoration, Woman on the Beach opened Hong Sang-soo’s world to female characters, prefiguring his collaborations with Kim Min-hee. Subtly comedic and profoundly revealing about relationships between the genders, the film also pokes fun at the self-important artist at its center.

    WOMAN IS THE FUTURE OF MAN

    Hong Sang-soo South Korea, 2004

    Hong Sang-soo’s delicate and tranquil Woman Is the Future of Man was the Korean master’s first feature to open theatrically in the U.S. following its Cannes premiere. A melancholic story of memory and longing, Hong uses his measured touch and mosaic of viewpoints to unearth candid human emotions.
