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.

Chan-sil, a film producer, finds herself unemployed after the sudden death of her long-time collaborated director. Out of prospects and out of luck, she moves into a low grade room in a poor neighbourhood, but something doesn't seem quite right with her new elderly landlady.

Director Kim Cho-hee, a former producer for Hong Sangsoo, debuts her own feature with this 2019 award-winning film. As the film begins with a male director suffering a heart attack, director Kim is dramatising her own struggles to break free of Hong’s shadow. Featuring academy award winner Youn Yuh-jung, the film is full of humour and insight about life.
