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.
