Beyond Fest '16: The Bad Batch

Look East Film Festival


If you didn't know already, I am a huge Asian cinema fan, especially of Park Chan-wook's work. His Vengeance Trilogy along with his other works like JSA (2000), It's Ok, I'm a Cyborg (2006), and Thirst (2009) have had incalculable influence on my womanhood. I am currently interning for Look East Film Festival. At first, i was beamed to hear that he was going to be one of the attendants. But almost fell to my knees to know that he will be having a Q&A for his film Thirst. My adored CSULB professor, Alison Hoffman is a big fan of Lee Chang-dong (Secret Sunshine, Poetry). So what better way to pay her back for giving me priceless insight on woman and film other than letting her moderate both of these director's Q&A? I am a ball of nerve just thinking about being in the same room as Park. Here is more information about the festival and hope you can all make it. If you do come and see me convulsing on the floor, please help me.
