Yobi, The Five-Tailed Fox (New York Premiere)
|Tuesday, March 15, 7 PM|
|Tribeca Cinemas (54 Varick Street)|
|Sung Gang Lee, Animation, 2007, 85 minutes|
On the other end of the spectrum is this lush, gorgeously animated film from the director that people call "Korea's Hayao Miyazaki," Lee Seong-Gang. His previous film was the lush MY BEAUTIFUL GIRL MARI, and he spent years making this follow-up, a big budget animated epic. Exquisitely detailed and shimmering with eye-popping colors, it tells the tale of one of Korea's mythical, shape-shifting five-tailed foxes and its encounter with an alien.
All seating is first-come, first-serve. Doors open at 6:30 PM.
