Infernal Machines: The Films of Kim Ki-Young
March 12 - 18, 2008
Kim Ki-young, a born maverick, Kim’s work encompassed the range of Korean cinema: The Housemaid (1960) became the biggest box-office success in Korean film history, while later works such as Carnivore (1984) and The Woman of Fire ’82 (1982) established the look of the low-budget, independent films of their era. Even when making literary adaptations, Kim (who frequently wrote or re-wrote his scripts) would almost completely transform the source material, leaving at best a theme or a setting as the link to the original.
