Master Class with director Ryoo Seung-Wan
Ryoo leads a new wave of Korean action cinema with his genre-blending films — his hard-boiled action debut DIE BAD (2000), his refreshing dramatic take on boxing in CRYING FIST (2005, Cannes) and the modern interpretation of martial arts action in CITY OF VIOLENCE (2007), a collaboration with Korea’s main Martial arts school. This year, Ryoo returns to Fantasia with his eighth film, THE UNJUST, for which he teamed up with his brother, actor Ryoo Seoung-beom, and Hwang Jung-Min, who both possess natural-born acting skills. During this master class, Ryoo offers an insider’s look into his creative and directorial processes.
Q&A follows with English and French interpreters.
At Reggie’s Bar (Hall Bldg., 1455 de Maisonneuve W., mezzanine level), Saturday, July 16, 3 p.m. – 5 p.m., free admission
