+ – + – ABOUT “SKY, WIND, STAR and CINEMA” – + – +
The event title and theme takes from the original “Sky, Wind, Star, and Poem 하늘과 바람과 별과 시”, the title of a collection of poems by a young Korean poet Dong-ju Yoon, who lived under Japanese colonial rule in the 1920s/1930s. As Korean literature and arts were heavily suppressed in this ‘era of darkness’, Yoon’s works acted as forms of resistance and continue to be celebrated and cherished today.
Yoon is the protagonist of TKFF 2016’s Closing Night film on June 24 (7:00PM @ Innis Town Hall), “DONG-JU: THE PORTRAIT OF A POET 동주” by Joon-ik Lee, starring Ha-neul Kang and Jung-min Park.
