A DIRTY CARNIVAL / 비열한 거리

2006, 141 minutes
Director: Yoo Ha
Cast: Zo In-Sung, Lee Bo-young, Namkoong Min, Chun Ho-Jin

Director Yoo Ha really knows the dark, gritty alleys behind Korea’s gleaming skyscrapers. In this universe of thugs, Byung-doo is a small time crook eking out small time scores to support his mother and siblings. Mr. Hwang, a shadowy boss, offers him a job that even Byung-doo—not the sharpest criminal—knows is far too dangerous to accept. But not accepting it is even more dangerous.

Monday, August 27, 9:15 @ IFC Center
Saturday, September 1, 6:00 PM @ BAM Rose Cinemas
