Lee Chang-dong’s masterful, haunting new drama Burning had a pair of sold-out screenings at the 56th New York Film Festival, both featuring Q&As with star Steven Yeun. Following a screening at the Walter Reade Theater, Yeun discussed the freedom of working with Lee Chang-dong, how his methods compare to those of Bong Joon-ho, the loneliness captured in the film, the depiction of class divide, and more.
Burning opens on October 26 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center with Yeun in person! See showtimes and get tickets here.
