Film Screening: Poetry (2010)
September 15, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Poetry is a South Korean film directed by Chang-dong Lee. A sixty-something woman, faced with a crippling medical diagnosis and the discovery of a heinous family crime, finds strength and purpose when she enrolls in a poetry class. Lee Chang-dong’s follow-up to his acclaimed Secret Sunshine is a masterful study of the subtle empowerment and moral compass of an elderly woman.
