Country: Denmark Year: 2018 Duration: 84m Partly subtitled Karoline visit South Korea for the first time since her adoption by a Danish family as a baby. Whilst staying in a guesthouse in Seoul, she meets other adoptees from Europe and the US who are there with a similar quest - to search for their birth families. Despite their different upbringings, what they seem to have in common is that each person is seeking to better grasp their 'origin', or at least allow themselves time to contemplate the issue of their identity. This film is a hybrid, blurring fact and fiction with both scripted and documentary elements. It draws from the director Malene Choi Jensen's own experience as an adoptee and features two lead actors who are adoptees themselves. The power of the film lies in the fact that many of Karoline's encounters and interactions in the guesthouse are captured for real. We are allowed to follow the emotional journey of the characters up-close, witnessing their everyday reality interspersed with carefully dramatised situations. Dr. Chi-Yun Shin will introduce this screening. **PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT WILL START PROMPTLY AT THE ADVERTISED TIME**

Arriving mid-winter, she has come for only a few days - but will stay on for a year, rediscovering the patience and preparation necessitated by the rhythms of the season. Adapted from Daisuke Igarashi's 2002 manga series, Yim Soon-rye's film comes with the barest outline of a love triangle, but is mostly content to observe Hye-won slowly restoring both herself - and the viewer - with a gentle routine of good food and friednship. Along the way, she reestablishes her relationship to her absent mother (Moon So-ri) and to mother nature, while reaping the rewards of her own replanted joie de vivre. With its heavy focus on cooking and eating, LITTLE FOREST will have you feeling hungry too.

Duration: 90m The glamour of Hollywood has always been inseparable from star performances and star images. This course is designed to analyse the historical, aesthetic, and cultural significance of film stars. Revealing the truth behind the glamour, we will examine issues of gender; the effects of the studio system; the value of stars to the audience; Hollywood’s self-reflection in films such as ‘A Star is Born’; and ultimately whether or not the traditional film star can compete in a culture of disposable celebrity and social media exposure.

Duration: 90m From the early cycle of Poverty Row features, the cranked-out Saturday morning serials and the bombastic yet penny pinched monster movies of the 1950s, the low budget arena has often been ridiculed and denigrated with much of its output being consigned to the bargain bins of Hollywood history. A deeper look at this world though reveals a richer, far more rewarding canon of work replete with its mix of influential, subversive and cinema defining moments. Using plenty of clips and discussion, this course will examine cult classics like Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, Carnival of Souls, the later work of horror stars like Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff, legends like Ed D Wood Jr and Roger Corman and game changing box office hits like Night of the Living Dead, The Blair Witch Project, and Monsters.

Duration: 85m Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time – and right up until his death in 1973 he was the most prolific of artists. Many films have dealt with these later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did this all begin? What made Picasso in the first place? Too long ignored, it is time to look at the early years of Picasso; the upbringing and the learning that led to his extraordinary achievements. Three cities play a key role: Malaga, Barcelona and Paris. Young Picasso visits each and explores their influence on Picasso, focusing on specific artworks from these early years. The film thus explains how this young artist acquired his craft. Looking carefully at two key early periods – the so-called Blue Period and Rose Period – the film takes us all the way to 1907 and the creation of a critical painting in the history of art – Les Demoiselles d’Avignon. It was a painting that shocked the art world but changed it irrevocably. Picasso was only 25 years old. Working closely with all three Picasso Museums in Malaga, Barcelona and Paris this film explains how he rose to great heights. **PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT WILL START PROMPTLY AT THE ADVERTISED TIME**
