‘Hill Of Freedom’ Streaming at The Crandell Virtual Screening Room

interior
Streaming next at the Crandell Theatre ‘Hill Of Freedom’.

Kwon (Seo Young-hwa) returns to Seoul from a restorative stay in the mountains. She is given a packet of letters left by Mori, who has come back from Japan to propose to her. As she walks down a flight of stairs, Kwon drops and scatters the letters, all of which are undated. When she reads them, she (and the audience) must make sense of the chronology. Shot in the narrow alleys, petite cafes and beautiful hanok inns of Seoul’s historic Jong-ro district, Hill of Freedom is a masterful, alternately funny and haunting, tale of love and longing from the great director.v1
