Classic Cinemas

Korean cinema’s Casablanca.

Cinema Reborn’s first film from Korea has long been regarded as one of the key works of modern Asian cinema. Aimless Bullet is a realist work, a film which captures the collective anxiety of post-war Korea through clerk Cheol-ho and his family — his mentally ill mother, his sex-worker sister and bank- robber brother. It epitomised the feeling of self-hatred and hopelessness that was central to Korean society after the Japanese occupation instituted a culture of domination and exploitation. Banned shortly after its first screenings by the then military government, Aimless Bullet has now been painstakingly restored by the Korean Film Archive. Cinema Reborn’s screening will be the first for the restoration in Australia.

The screening will be introduced by Russell Edwards, a film critic and teacher of Asian Cinema at RMIT University. He is a former President of the Film Critics Circle of Australia and an advisor to the Busan International Film Festival. To read Russell's detailed notes on the film, click here.
