Classic Korean Cinema presents Epitaph (Gi-dam)
In 1979, Dr. Park receives an old photo album from his twenties in 1941 when mysterious things befell him and his colleagues. Park was bound by his parents to marry a girl whom he has never met but later falls in love with a dead woman. Meanwhile, a little girl who was apparently the only survivor of a car accident has been haunted by ghosts every night. After two doctors (a married couple) involved in these two stories return to their hospital from Tokyo, a series of serial murders occur around them.
Film Curator Ms. Hyun-Ock Im will give an introductory remark of the program and lead a discussion after the screening.
