PiFan 2012 to Hold Myung Films Retrospective

The lineup for next month's 16th Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival will not be revealed for another week but we now have our first indication of some of the films that will screened at the event. PiFan will be holding a retrospective of the respected Korean production company Myung Films. The sidebar will be titled "Asian Major Studio Special Program: The Sun and the Moon of Korean Films, Myung Films" and will feature a cross section of some of the company's major works. 

Those works that will screen include: The Quiet Family (1998), Happy End (1999), The Isle (2000), Joint Security Area (2000), Waikiki Brothers (2001), A Good Lawyer's Wife (2003), Bloody Tie (2006) and Cyrano Agency (2010). Myung Films was founded in 1995 and has built a reputation as an enabler of some of the country's best behind-the-scenes talent as it has fostererd early films from Park Chan-wook, Kim Jee-woon and Im Sang-soo. In addition to the films, there will also be some special sessions with various Myung representatives as well as actors and directors from their past films. 

Some great films worth seeing on the big screen and I look forward to the full lineup on June 26!

    I've not seen any of these on the big screen, in fact I've never seen Happy End, Wakiki Bros, A Good Lawyer's Wife or Cyrano Agency. Will have to try and squeeze some of these in. PiFan is shaping up nicely!
