Park Kwang-su (Interview) – “Meet Mr Park”

Politically charged or at least with a political leaning is how Park Kwang-su’s films may be described. This is no surprise considering his background and interest.  Films such as “Chilsu and Mansu”, “Uprising” and “A Single Spark” all have stories of liberation in some form or another.  The following interview was performed on the same day as a special screening of “Meet Mr Daddy” in London and as different as that film is to others of his, it still managed to garner an award or two for Park Kwang-su.  So, let’s ‘Meet Mr Park’…!

Korean Film Interviews

Ultimately, what occurred was a group interview rather than a one-on-one chat.  With this in mind please join me in giving thanks to the following:

After the event followed an insightful Q & A session and here’s a snap of Mr Park Kwang-su, along with Korean expert Dr Mark Morris plus our marvellous translator.

“Meet Mr Daddy” marked the 96th film night from the lovely guys over at the Korean Cultural Centre, London.  The 100th picture will be “Always”, by Song Il-gon.

Please join me in congratulating this Korean Cultural Centre on reaching this number, and therefore marking a seminal point in the job they do to promote or re-ignite peoples’ love for Korean film-making.

Footnote:

First and Foremost [although almost Last in this article!], many thanks again to the Korean Cultural Centre, London for arranging this interview and allowing it to take place.

But… The fun is not over yet!  Keep an eye out, and continue to regularly check out the Korean Cultural Centre’s homepage.  For what?

Perhaps this – found on their website – will (hugely) hint at what this year holds for us…:
