oct 19, 2021 at 7:00 PM

As a part of this fall's East Asia Semester, the MSU Billings Office of International Studies is offering three film festival events. The second event showcases the Korean film, “Burning.” This event is free and open to the public. 

Ted Kim, a cinema professor at MSU Billings, will be giving an introduction to discuss the film’s cultural impact, cinematography, and more.

“Burning” is a 2018 South Korean psychological thriller film co-written, produced, and directed by Lee Chang-dong. The plot depicts a young deliveryman, Jong-su (Yoo), who runs into his childhood friend, Hae-mi (Jeon). They soon meet an enigmatic young man named Ben (Yeun), who Jong-su becomes suspicious of and begins to believe Hae-mi is in danger.

Burning premiered at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and has received almost universal critical acclaim, particularly for its sense of unease, ambiguous narrative, and performances.
