About this event

To celebrate Korean culture during the Edinburgh Festivals season, the Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK) is opening a pop-up centre 'Korea House' in Edinburgh this August. In partnership with the Seoul Independent Film Festival, we bring you a selection of Korean independent films as part of the programme.

Director Kim Bora’s feature debut is set in Seoul in 1994, during the time of the Seongsu Bridge collapse. The film’s heroine, 14-year-old Eunhee, wanders the city searching for love and meaning. The film's measured pace allows the narrative to examine the tender moments of despair, joy and misery that come with adolescence. Kim presents an honest and poignant take on her heroine with brilliant cinematography from Kang Guk-hyun and evocative soundtrack by composer Matija Strniša as accompaniment. Park Ji-hu as the heroine gives a powerhouse performance. Winner of numerous film festival awards including the Tribecca Film Festival Award for Best International Narrative Feature in 2019.
