SEOUL - Czech-Korean Film Encounters on Art Movie Posters

A retrospective exhibition of Czech and Czechoslovak posters made for North and South Korean movies from the 1950s to 2010s at Korean Film Archive´s film museum.

The Czech Centre Seoul in cooperation with the  Korean Film Archive and the Embassy of the Czech Republic to the Republic of Korea organizes an exhibition entitled „Czech-Korean Film Encounters on Art Movie Posters“. This exhibition mainly presents posters from the collection of Pavel Rajčan. It presents posters for both South and North Korean movies which were screened in Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic, and it offers an opportunity to explore the Czech-Korean film relations. Korean Film Archive will display reproductions of rare posters dated from the 1950’s and also some original art movie posters made by Czech artists in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Furthermore, the exhibition is accompanied by a whole set of posters to Filmasia, a festival of Asian film which already for 8 years takes place annually in Prague and features also Korean movies. Some posters to Czech movies previously screened in Korea will be also showed. The exhibition will be inaugurated by a screening of a Czech movie Flower Buds (Poupata), a winner of Flash Forward Award at the 2012 Busan International Film Festival.
