Film Screening: "The Remnants" (KIM Il-Rhan & LEE Hyuk-sang, 2016, 130 min, South Korea, in Korean w/ English subtitles, Color, Digital) / In October 2015, the evicted residents who had imprisoned on a false charge of killing a policeman assembled in a place for the first time after the Yongsan Disaster six years ago. They had occupied a watchtower against unreasonable redevelopment policies and in protest against violent suppression used by riot police in 25 hours of their sit-in demonstration. Their colleagues had died from an unknown fire, and they became criminals. The delight of meeting again lasts only briefly. The 'comrades' rip out cruel words while blaming each other. / "Although the film takes standard tactics which is an interview documentary, "The Remnants" has many layers within it including unstoppable self-examination" -- Lee Seung-min / Preceded by a reception at 5:30pm on "The Landing" (Bryan Center, formerly the location of Au Bon Pain). // Sponsored by the Academy of Korean Studies and the Duke Korea Forum.
