Korean Horror: Week 1 - Ghosts & Specters
October 9, 2023
To open our course, we’ll formulate a working definition of “horror” as a film genre and learn about how it communicates social anxieties through monstrous metaphors. As well, we’ll start examining how South Korean horror films fit into or fall out of our American conceptions of the genre by examining the most classic of Korean horror tropes—the female ghost—in the Korean horror pathbreakers, A Tale of Two Sisters (2004) and Memento Mori (1999).
In conjunction with this film talk, SIFF will present A Tale of Two Sisters in 35mm at SIFF Cinema Egyptian on Sunday, October 8.
