SCREENING

J.S.A.: Joint Security Area

Ongoing

Dir. Park Chan-wook. 2000, 110 mins. Digital projection. With Lee Yeong-ae, Lee Byung-hun, Song Kang-ho, Kim Tae-woo. An incident in the J.S.A. (the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea) leaves two North Korean border guards dead and one South Korean wounded. The Swiss-Korean woman officer heading the neutral enquiry into the skirmish gets nowhere until she stumbles upon a history of secret fraternization between some of the border guards on both sides. J.S.A.: Joint Security Area is an engrossing political thriller about murder, betrayal, and forbidden friendship along the heavily patrolled, mine-laden D.M.Z. The highly acclaimed J.S.A.: Joint Security Area became the highest grossing film in Korea, and won several Grand Bell awards—South Korea’s equivalent of the Oscar.
