About this Event

Golden Age of Cinema in Postwar South Korea (1954-1972)

This event is organized by GYOPO and co-presented with the UCLA Center for Korean Studies, UCLA Center for the Study of Women | Barbra Streisand Center, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Before the recent global popularity of South Korean films and dramas, the 1950s and 1960s saw the emergence of some of the most dynamic cinematic auteurs who produced such classics as Madame Freedom (1956), The Housemaid (1960), Mother and a Guest (1961), and Aimless Bullet (1961). Join us for a two-day symposium at UCLA and the Korean Cultural Center, Los Angeles, to learn about this era, its directors, and the films that have influenced generations of Korean filmmakers thereafter.

Featured film scholars, writers, and movie critics include Christina Klein, Steven Chung, Kyung Hyun Kim, Irhe Sohn, and Laura Ha Reizman, the author Paul Fischer and legendary movie critic and translator Darcy Paquet. Nahmee Lee, Laura Ha Reizman, and Kathleen McHugh will moderate roundtable discussions. The symposium is free and takes place in person. Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) tickets to the exhibition The Space Between: The Modern in Korean Art will include admission to the symposium.
