Celebrating 100 years of Korean film

 

Returning for the fourth consecutive year, the London East Asia Film Festival kicks off from 24th October – 3rd November 2019.

The festival begins with the European premiere of EXIT at ODEON Luxe Leicester Square on Thursday 24th October 2019.

The latest disaster action comedy from Korean director Lee Sang-geun, EXIT centres around a deadly gas attack that leaves thousands stranded in skyscrapers across Seoul.

The disaster inspires the unemployed Yong-nam to become a hero when his entire family, brought together for his mother’s 70th birthday, are trapped in a downtown banquet hall. As the corrosive cloud seeps in through the cracks in the walls, will Yong-nam be able to save them all?

Find out for yourselves and book tickets online here. Tickets cost from £16.76 and include the Q&A session following the film.

Marking the 100th anniversary of Korean cinema, don’t miss a jaw-dropping programme of screenings and events looking at the next 100 years of Korean film and filmmakers. See the full line-up here.
