Next Week: Korean Film Festival DC at NMWA


Next Thursday at NWMA there is a film screening for "a.k.a. Nikki S. Lee." Phillips Collection screened this last year and I was bummed I missed it; the word from Kata was it was great. Lee will be there to discuss the film. Following this screening, there is another for "Before the Summer Passes Away" which interests me since it is by a female Korean director. Tickets are only $5 for each screening. Reservations are recommended. It's still a tough search to seek stories about Korean identity. Thank the gods for putting Jin and Sun on "Lost."

BTW, this screening was a one-two punch of total Korean female awesomeness. Nikki S. Lee is more amazing than I could have imagined and "Before the Summer..." showed a surprisingly real perspective on loves that should be lost.
