Mother + Bong Joon-Ho In Conversation

Exploring the relationship between a mother and son, Bong Joon-Ho’s dark and compelling drama Mother explores maternal feelings in all their terrifying intensity. In this discussion, chaired by Tony Rayns, Bong Joon-Ho comments on his films' propensity to explore the broken family unit and the inspiration behind his latest work. What follows is an amusing account of his formative years growing up in Korea, from late night viewing of American B-movies on army regulated television networks to his years at the university cinema club. Characterised by off-beat humour and a delightful enthusiasm for cinematic spectacle, Bong Joon-Ho has firmly established himself as a major star of Korean cinema.
