|Korea film week at MovieTowne |
Monday, March 20 2017
THE Embassy of the Republic of Korea will host Korea Film Week under the patronage of the Korea Foundation and in co-operation with MovieTowne from March 27-28.
Building on the success of the previous film weeks since 2012, the embassy is once again bringing to the local audience another opportunity to experience Korean culture.
This year’s film week will be held from March 27 to 28 at MovieTowne, Port-of-Spain. Four Korean films will be screened, all of which were a huge success in Korea with themes of social justice, friendship, love and family values.
In the past 20 years, the Korean film industry has been developing at a fast pace. Korea is now one of the few countries in the world of which the locally made films enjoy over 50 percent market share in the domestic film market, said a media release from the embassy.
Admission is free and on a first-come first-serve basis; tickets can be collected at MovieTowne’s box office three days in advance of each film. However, tickets are limited to two per person per movie, as only 130 seats are available for each screening, with the exception of the opening first movie, Ode to my Father, which can facilitate 300 people.
The screening schedules of all films are as follows:
•March 27 –Ode to my Father, 6.30 pm
•March 27 –My Love, My Bride, 9 pm
•March 28 –Tunnel, 6.30 pm
