Genre-ama: In February, at the Korean Cultural Centre


The Yeonghwa Film Club at the Korean Cultural Centre India explores the varied landscape of South Korean cinema through a selection of four films from four different genres. The films include both mainstream blockbusters and independent success stories that present fresh perspectives on established genres.
This Friday the Yeonghwa Film Club will be screening Daytime Drinking (2008), a deadpan comedy about three friends who go on a road trip.

Daytime Drinking (Natsul )
Noh Young-seok, 2008, 115 min

Date and time: 8th February at 6:30 PM

Synopsis: On a drunken night out with his friends, a broken-hearted young man is swayed into going to the countryside with them for a getaway. But when he gets there, he finds that not only have none of them showed up, but the tiny seaside town is shuttered - no shops are open, no tourists are around, the beach is freezing, and there’s no cell phone signal. Unable (and reluctant) to return to Seoul, he finds himself in the company of some very unusual locals and, subject to the rigid rules of 
Korean drinking culture, on an increasingly strange odyssey nursing a never-ending hangover. Shot on HD for $10,000, this dry, minimalist comedy heralded a new era of independent filmmaking in Korea.
