Film List & Plot Summary
- An Omnivorous Family’s Dilemma (English Subtitles)
This film stars the director’s own typical Korean city-based family as she confronts issues of life and death while birthing and bonding with her own infant son and, uniquely, a family of pigs.
Conflict and humor arise when her husband wants to eat meat, but she starts to think and feel differently, accepting her feelings of a need for change.
Director: Hwang, Yun
- Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret
In one brief year this single movie has had a huge impact around the world, inspiring established restaurants’ owners to switch suddenly to fully vegan menus, and impressing Leonardo DiCaprio enough to lend his name as producer. Come and see the story of a couple of guys who go after Greenpeace and other major environmental organizations, and find out the stunning truths they learn while seeking answers.
Directors: Kip Andersen, Keegan Kuhn
- Bicycle, City (English Subtitles)
Bicycle riders continue to be threatened by drivers and excluded from the physical space of cities throughout Korea. But the first roads were made for bicycles, not cars, and despite the danger, passionate cyclists continue to stake a claim to a share of the roads, including in Seoul.
This is a story of the big old city, made new again; it is a story of the familiar made strange. Come see a story of the home which dominates: delivered to you by bicycle.
Director: Kong, Miyeon
