 Dear all,

 As the program director, I proudly present the 6th annual Korean Film Festival
 at University of Iowa, entitled, "TWO DIRECTORS: A MAJOR RETROSPECTIVE 
 OF KIM JEE-WOON & YIM PHIL-SUNG," to be held next week from September 
 23rd(Fri) to 25th(Sat) at 101 BCSB. 

 As the first and major retrospective in the Midwest devoted to all films
 (except only one short) by these two extremely talented contemporary 
 Korean filmmakers, it will offer 5 feature films including their most recent features
 <A Bittersweet Life> (2005) and <Antarctic Journal> (2005)(4 of which will
 be in gorgeous 35mm print), and 5 shorts.

 Most important, both Kim and Yim will be present throughout the festival
 and at the roundtable discussion on Saturday evening (6:30PM) where
 they will answer questions and provide fresh thoughts on their own films. 

 If you have any questions(e.g. lodging), feel free to ask me (or ailerouge at hanmail.net)
