Dear List Members:

A quick question:  I will offer a course on "Korean Film" this 
summer, at IIC, but have a hard time getting tapes of *older* Korean 
movies here in San Francisco. I also wonder if there is any (Korean) 
documentary film about the early Korean movie industry during the 
colonial period and the 50s and 60s -- ideally with some clips of 
films from that time.
If KOIS is done with cleaning up and straightening out all those 
horrible Web sites around the world, then maybe they could help a 
whitish boy who is ignorant of all such matters. (Sorry for my 
unprofessional whining, someone just hit me over the head -- never 
got used to that and am still dazzled.) But I fear I cannot wait 
until then. So, if you guys know of any other Korean institution that 
is less busy right now, and that *might* be willing to reply to my 
inquiry, then I would really appreciate that.
