2022 Korean film The Girl on a Bulldozer (불도저에 탄 소녀) in Pittsburgh, October 1.


The 2022 Korean film The Girl on a Bulldozer (불도저에 탄 소녀) will play in Pittsburgh on October 1 as part of this year's SCREENSHOT: Asia Film Festival.
With a dragon tattoo blazoned across her left arm, Kim Hye-Yoon plays the headstrong heroine who, after her dad falls into a coma following a suspicious accident, doggedly seeks answers despite mounting resistance from a variety of corrupt forces. Faced with the additional pressures of tending to her father’s restaurant, taking care of her younger brother, and completing mandatory work training following a short prison stay, our heroine is forced to grow up fast. Simultaneously a vehicle for social critique, a coming-of-age story, and a gripping thriller, The Girl on a Bulldozer is driven by Kim’s visceral, charismatic performance, which won her the 2022 Screen International Rising Star Award at the New York Asian Film Festival.
It plays at 2:00 pm in the Frick Fine Arts Auditorium in Oakland (map), and tickets are available onilne.
