Cinema by Jose Luis Guerin
The Spanish Embassy, together with the Seoul Cinematheque, presents a series of films by Jose Luis Guerin famous for his meditative and intellectually curious work in filmmaking.
The first screening will be "Work in Progress" at 5 p.m. Altogether, five films will be shown, with one after-screening talk which will be on Sept. 15, the last day of the themed screening. His works are unfamiliar to many. The Harvard Film Archive described Guerin's film a "purposefully confound narrative and documentary traditions, discovering rich narrative threads woven into the tapestries of his real life subjects and unraveling mysteries without solutions that nevertheless leaves the viewer deeply satisfied."
