Hill of Freedom - Online Screenings

Friday, June 12, 2020

Kwon returns to Seoul from a restorative stay in the mountains. She is given a packet of letters left by Mori, who has come back from Japan to propose to her. As she walks down a flight of stairs, Kwon drops and scatters the letters, all of which are undated. When she reads them, she has to make sense of the chronology… and so must we. Shot in the narrow alleys, petite cafes and beautiful hanok inns of Seoul’s historic Jong-ro district, HILL OF FREEDOM is a masterful, alternately funny and haunting, tale of love and longing from the great Hong Sangsoo. NR / 67 min. "A masterwork. Achieves a complexity akin to the grand historical meditations of Alain Resnais. Ingeniously constructed. I've watched it three times forwards and one time backwards and I feel as if I'm just beginning to get the hang of it." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker "The prolific South Korean writer-director's funniest work, a wry, mostly English-language comedy." - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, The A.V. Club
