Gender, Economic Inequality and Human Rights in South Korean Film
York University welcomes director Shin Su-won to screen her film Madonna (2015), which premiered in the Un Certain Regard section of the 68th Cannes Film Festival. A conversation with her will follow the screening.
Su-won is a South Korean film director and screenwriter. She wrote and directed Passerby #3 (2010), Circle Line (2012), Pluto (2013), Madonna (2015) and Glass Garden (2017). Her films are highly recommended for the innovative cinematography, the astonishingly creative narrative structure, and the politically charged messages on human rights, economic inequality and gender issues.
All are welcome.
