Korean film Burning (버닝) free at Pitt, March 29.



The University of Pittsburgh's Department of East Asian Languages & Literatures will present Burning (버닝) on March 29, the final installment of this year's Korean Film Festival. The official site summarizes Burning:
BURNING is the searing examination of an alienated young man, Jongsu (Ah-in Yoo), a frustrated introvert whose already difficult life is complicated by the appearance of two people into his orbit: first, Haemi (newcomer Jong-seo Jun), a spirited woman who offers romantic possibility, and then, Ben (Steven Yeun, THE WALKING DEAD, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU), a wealthy and sophisticated young man she returns from a trip with. When Jongsu learns of Ben’s mysterious hobby and Haemi suddenly disappears, his confusion and obsessions begin to mount, culminating in a stunning finale.
It will be shown in 332 Cathedral of Learning from 6:00 to 9:00 pm and is free and open to the public.
