The LGBTQI + Center in Paris and Ile-de-France presents the monthly film club "Exiles of Korean Cinema" at Brady, an independent cinema Art & Essai. This program will consist of four Korean feature films around the theme of exile. The departure, the reasons for leaving everything, the consequences and implications of such a choice. Subject eminently cinematographic.
This selection was made to highlight the problem of homosexuality in Korean cinema and more generally in a society where it is not accepted. Beyond the committed character, these four films are masterpieces of the 7th Korean art, real aesthetic achievements, they will travel the viewer, from the 16th century until today, from the Korean countryside to the royal palace.
