On the Beach at Night Alone presented by Acropolis Cinema
Screening on November 21st at 8 PM, and November 24th at 8 PM
Art imitates life in this quietly devastating masterpiece from Hong Sangsoo. Kim Minhee (The Handmaiden, Right Now, Wrong Then)—in the role that won her the Silver Bear for best actress in Berlin—plays Younghee, an actress reeling in the aftermath of an affair with a married film director. Younghee visits Hamburg then returns to Korea, but as she meets with friends and has her fair share to drink, increasingly startling confessions emerge.
No stranger to mining his own experience for his films, Hong, whose real-life affair with Kim stirred up a media frenzy in Korea, here confronts his personal life with a newfound emotional directness. With an incredibly raw and vulnerable performance from Kim at its center, On the Beach at Night Alone is one of the most dynamic collaborations between director and performer in contemporary cinema.

My Straight Son (Azul y No Tan Rosa)
This drama about sexual freedom is the first Venezuelan winner of the Goya Awards, the Spanish equivalent of the Oscars.
Director Miguel Ferrari packs in themes including homosexuality, fatherhood, adolescent love, domestic abuse, online identity, reality TV, homophobia, transgender discrimination, and more into a unsurprisingly schematic but also compact and slick package which would however, have greatly, benefited, from a more unhurried treatment of any one of its multiple subjects.
Open Doors: 4:30 pm
Screening 5:00 pm
