Right Now, Wrong Then

Co-presented by Acropolis Cinema

The screening will be followed by a Soju reception on the patio!

Winner of the Golden Leopard at the 2015 Locarno Film Festival, prolific South Korean auteur Hong Sangsoo’s 17th feature is a wry, humorous deconstruction of courtship rituals and the offhand decisions that drastically alter everyday experiences. Structured in two contrasting parts and suffused with the director’s trademark flair for situational comedy (often fueled by copious amounts of soju), Right Now, Wrong Then centers on an at once ingratiating and enervating encounter between a wayward film director (Jeong Jaeyoung) and an aspiring young painter (Kim Minhee) who meet at random at a hillside temple and decide to spend an increasingly eventful evening together. Playful and of unassuming insight, Hong’s latest brings his career-long fascination with the paradoxes of the male-female dynamic and the inherent irony of the human condition to beautifully reciprocal new ends, highlighting the nascent volatility in even the most casual of conversations.

Dir Hong Sangsoo, 2015, DCP, 121 min.
