The Tapestry of Suffering – The Cinema of Lee Chang-dong
Hailed as one of the most admired auteurs and literary figures in South Korea, Lee Changdong has contributed to putting Korean cinema firmly on the global stage, despite a mere six features in over 20 years. From his debut Green Fish to his latest Burning, Lee consistently delves into the struggles and sufferings faced by marginalised characters, exploring the intricacies of human nature and society. Poetic, devastating yet achingly beautiful, his body of work captivates with its thought-provoking stories that emotionally resonate with audiences.
