The Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the Consulate General of the Republic Of Korea (in Mumbai), is presenting a Korean Film Festival
from 23rd to 29th April, at Sarathi Studio. A total of 9 Korean films will be screened during the week-long festival.
Marathon is the only film to be screened on the penultimate day, 28th April. The film is directed by Jeong Yoon-Chul, and stars Jo Seung-Woo, Kim Mi-Suk and Lee Gi-Yeong.
The movie follows the story of a young man Cho-Won, who suffers from autism, who finds release only in running. As a child, Cho-Won regularly threw tantrums, bit himself, and refused to communicate with others - finding solace only in zebras and in the Korean snack Chocopie. His mother never gave up on him and was determined to prove to the world that her child can be normal.
As Cho-Won gets older, he begins to find a passion for running, and his mother encourages and supports him. Even though both mother and Cho-Won suffer from family and financial issues, they find a former marathon champion - now a lethargic old man with alcohol problems.
Entry to all the films is free, and is on first-come-first-served basis. Please contact Bh Prakash Reddy, Secretary of the Hyderabad Film Club, at 93910-20243 for further details.
