Burning

Part of Rewind\\Redesign

Mysteries seem to multiply after struggling novelist Jong-su’s fledgling romance with the mercurial Hae-mi is interrupted by Ben, an inexplicably wealthy young man with a disconcerting hobby. As Jong-su’s jealousy turns into panicked suspicion, he navigates millennial ennui and the maddening unknowability of other people in his search for the truth. Burning marked Chang-dong Lee’s return to the director’s chair after being blacklisted by the Korean government in 2010, channeling 8 years of pent-up frustration into a film simmering with class politics.

In Korean with English subtitles.

Rewind\\Redesign is a recurring series where Paradise invites a local, celebrated artist to pick a favourite movie and redesign its poster. This edition of Rewind\\Redesign features artwork courtesy of Joel Gregorio from Sovereign State. Signed, limited-edition prints will be available for sale before and after the show.
