Thu, Feb 9, 2006 | 7:00PM
Influenced by such European film masters as Eric Rohmer, Robert Bresson, and Michelangelo Antonioni, Hong Sang-soo expands the modernist legacy through his rich depictions of human experience.
Second feature start time: 9 pm.
Hong is deservedly famous for splitting his films into separate but interconnected halves. He employs this device with astonishing flair and subtlety in The Power of Kangwon Province, a remarkable account of the parallel vacations taken by a man and a woman who recently ended their clandestine affair. (110 mins.) The Day a Pig Fell into the Well, Hong's acclaimed debut film, is a dark, surprising ensemble film about the lives of urban professionals and artists that builds to the most dramatic and tense climax of the director's career. (115 mins.)
