Chung-hoon Chung on the set of Stoker

Chung-hoon Chung sets up a shot in Stoker

We’re thrilled to host guest Chung-hoon Chung, renowned cinematographer of such films as Oldboy, Lady Vengeance, and the recent Stoker, tomorrow morning in the Folino theater.

As part of the Film Studies program, Professor Nam Lee has brought numerous special guests to address Dodge College students, most notably as the director of the Busan West Film Festival.  In fact, several of Chung’s films have played here, including Oldboy and Thirst, both directed by Icon Award winner Park Chan-wook.

If you haven’t explored much Korean cinema, or even if you’re a die-hard Asian cinephile, tomorrow’s Transnational Korean Cinema class will present a great opportunity to learn more about this burgeoning culture straight from the mind of one of the world’s premiere cinematographers.

This special event will begin with a Q&A with Chung and Prof. Lee, followed by a double screening of Oldboy, and his most recent major international picture, Stoker.  The class begins at 10AM, so get some coffee early and get ready to settle in to an epic morning of beautiful, international cinema!

Check out the trailers, especially if you haven’t seen them yet:  (Oldboy in particular is already a modern classic!)
