Korean Film Days

October 9 - 16, 2015

Pera Film in collaboration with Embassy of Korea in Ankara is presenting a program of modern Korean Cinema. The selection sheds light on a new generation of directors. Jennifer Rousse-Marquet in her ina global web article underlines that: “South Korea is one of the few countries where local productions have a dominant share of the domestic market, surpassing American movies. Not only do Korean movies garner public attention in their homeland, but they also win awards in prestigious international film festivals such as Cannes, Berlin or Venice.” This five-film selection spans over ten years and brings together different genres of visually enticing films with unique storytelling.

This program’s screenings are free of admissions. Drop in.

Portrait of Martín Zapater (1797)

Martín Zapater y Clavería, born in Zaragoza on November 12th 1747, came from a family of modest merchants and was taken in to live with a well-to-do aunt, Juana Faguás, and her daughter, Joaquina de Alduy. He studied with Goya in the Escuelas Pías school in Zaragoza from 1752 to 1757 and a friendship arose between them which was to last until the death of Zapater in 1803.
