Show Summary Details


While promoting contemporary new work from Korea, PIFF also strategically sought to bring new international attention to classic older films of the 1960s to the 1980s. Three Korean retrospectives—Korea's New Wave, Kim Ki-young, and Shin Sang-Ok—as well as other Asian-focused retrospectives helped establish PIFF as an influential agent of memory. Highlighting older Asian films also reinforced other political and social interests of the festival, and helped shape its emerging relationship with the global film industry.

Keywords: retrospectives; classics; memory; Korea's New Wave; Kim Ki-young; Shin Sang-Ok
