Film Comment Live: The Hong Show with Dennis Lim
Tuesday, May 3, 2022
This event will take place on Tuesday, May 3 at 7pm in the Amphitheater. Reception and book signing to follow.
Everything you always wanted to know about Hong Sangsoo… but were afraid to ask! To celebrate Part Two of Film at Lincoln Center’s retrospective of the films of Hong Sangsoo, Film Comment editors Clinton Krute and Devika Girish will host a special conversation with Film at Lincoln Center Director of Programming Dennis Lim about the playful, profound, and soju-soaked filmography of one of world cinema’s most influential and ingenious artists. Lim, the author of a forthcoming monograph on Hong’s Tale of Cinema from Fireflies Press, will have his expertise put to the test with a series of preselected questions from Film Comment contributors about the South Korean auteur’s elliptical, endlessly generative oeuvre.
In keeping with the spirit of the films, drinks will be served before and during the conversation. A signing of Dennis Lim’s Tale of Cinema will follow the event. Talk attendees will also have a chance to win a copy of the new book!
Free and open to the public, with free tickets available beginning at the 6pm on May 3 at the EBM box office! The conversation will be available soon on the Film Comment Podcast. Subscribe here.
The Hong Sangsoo Multiverse: A Retrospective of Double Features is underway through May 10 at Film at Lincoln Center.
