Korean Film Archive to Screen Director Lee Du-yong's Films

2006/01/06 | 281 views |  | Permalink | Source

The Classic Film Hall of the Korean Film Archive ( Open the link ) will screen thriller and action films directed by Lee Doo-yong as the first part of its "weekend films series" in 2006.

The films will be screened at the Classic Film Hall of the Seoul Arts Center in Seocho-dong, Seoul on Saturdays and Sundays in January.

Since he began producing films in 1963, Lee has directed about 60 feature films. He has shown particular interest in producing action films such as "Left Foot of Wrath" and "One-Legged Man of Death", as well as expressing common Korean sentiments in his films based on traditional motifs.

In particular, his film "The Last Witness" (1980) was adapted by director Bae Chang-ho as a remake under the title of "The Last Witness" (2001). When the original film was first released, a 40-minute portion was edited out due to censorship laws of that time. But a complete and uncensored cut of "The Last Witness" will be screened this time around.

The upcoming film show will screen a total of six films directed by Lee, including "44th Street, New York" (1976), which was filmed entirely on-location in the United States, and "Imbecile" (1985) starring singer Jeon Yeong-rok, which spawned a number of sequels.
