A retrospective series of Korean films, entitled Korean Cinema’s Golden Decade: The 1960s will be presented from September 1 through 17 at Lincoln Center, New York.
The series features some of the best-known films of the era from many genres: melodramas and period epics to action, horror, war, and giant monster movies. Some of the famous directors whose films will be screened include Sang-ok Shin, Hyun-mok Yu, Soo-yong Kim and Man-hee Lee. These mid-century auteurs popularized and reinvented many of the genres as the nation’s film industry launched in the aftermath of the Korean War.
