Description

At our second Asia Society Switzerland Movie Night, we will show:

«A TAXI DRIVER», 2017, by Jang Hoon

In this award-winning feature film, South Korean taxi driver Kim Man-seob (Song Kang-ho) gives German journalist Jürgen Hinzpeter (Thomas Kretschmann) a ride to cover the Gwangju democratic uprisings in 1980. A decision he soon regrets. A Taxi Driver was selected as the South Korean entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards and reflects on the democratic struggle of South Korea under dictator Chun Doo-whan, who had declared martial law across the country.

The movie will be shown in Korean with English subtitles and will be followed by an apéro.
