Winner of the Best Screenplay Award at the Cannes Film Festival, Poetry is an exquisite portrait of a woman’s brave fight against Alzheimer’s and against her guilt over a relative’s brutal crime. Mija, an aging maid and guardian of her grandson, is concerned by her frequent forgetfulness and takes a poetry class to sharpen her mind. She begins to appreciate the wonders of the natural world, but a schoolgirl’s suicide initiates a chain of tragic events that will change her life forever. Korean language with English subtitles. (35mm presentation)


This series is sponsored by the East Asian Studies Center, Department of Communication and Culture, TECO, the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Chicago, and IU Cinema. Special thanks to Professor Stephanie DeBoer. Screenings are free, but ticketed.
