Indie Movie: Burning

Exclusive One Night Showing


Join Indievents and Full Circle Book Co-Op for a special screening of BURNING.

BURNING is a multi-award-winning thriller from acclaimed director Chang-Dong Lee (Poetry, Secret Sunshine). The film has won awards around the world including 2 at Cannes where it was also nominated for a Palme d’Or for directing. BURNING is also currently on the short list for an Oscar for Best Foreign Language film.

BURNING is the searing examination of an alienated young man, Jongsu (Ah-in Yoo), a frustrated introvert whose already difficult life is complicated by the appearance of two people into his orbit: first, Haemi (newcomer Jong-seo Jun), a spirited woman who offers romantic possibility, and then, Ben (Steven Yeun, THE WALKING DEAD, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU), a wealthy and sophisticated young man she returns from a trip with. When Jongsu learns of Ben’s mysterious hobby and Haemi suddenly disappears, his confusion and obsessions begin to mount, culminating in a stunning finale.

The screening will be at 7 PM at Full Circle Book Co-Op. Tickets are $8 in advance and $12 at the door.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!
