Oscar-nominated director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu has teamed with former New York Times critic Elvis Mitchell to present “Flesh, Mind and Spirit,” a movie spectacle in Seoul.
Described as an “eclectic sampling menu,” and “a personal reflection of Gonzalez Inarritu’s film inspirations,” the two-week event will present 14 movies at the new cinema space within Prada Transformer, an arts center in downtown Seoul.
The selection, spanning different genres and multiple decades of film, include many never before screened in Korea. They range from Karl Dreyer’s 1955 “Ordet,” through 1982 Cannes Palme d’Or winner “Yol” to Roy Andersson’s “You the Living.” The selection also includes Korean smash hit “The Good, the Bad, the Weird,” by Kim Jiwoon.
