SNOWPIERCER
2013, Radius-TWC, 126 min, South Korea, Czech Republic, USA, France, Dir: Bong Joon Ho

One of the most dazzling visions of our dystopian future since Ridley Scott’s BLADE RUNNER, this sci-fi thriller takes place on a train carrying the last survivors - Chris Evans, Ed Harris, Tilda Swinton and Octavia Spencer among them - of a man-made environmental catastrophe. But a rigid class structure has been imposed on the passengers, leading to a bloody rebellion.

BARKING DOGS NEVER BITE
FLANDERSUI GAE
2000, Magnolia Pictures, 110 min, South Korea, Dir: Bong Joon Ho

A mix of gallows humor and character-driven chaos, Bong Joon Ho’s directorial debut stars Lee Sung-jae as a jobless academic living in an apartment complex. Driven to the brink by his demanding wife and by the persistent sound of a barking dog, he resolves to rid the complex of noisy pooches wherever he finds them. Faced with the disappearance of one beloved pet after another, the complex’s unassuming bookkeeper (Bae Donna) finds herself under pressure to uncover the culprit. Smartly satirical in its depiction of confined living, BARKING DOGS NEVER BITE both shocks and delights with a tale of two unfulfilled people and the surreal series of events that brings them into collision.


BARKING DOGS NEVER BITE in Korean with English subtitles. | Special Ticket Prices: $15 General, $13 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers.
