Creaking Projectors is presenting a Korean war classic film "Welcome To Dongmakgol" on 5th March, at the La Makaan. It is a 2005 South Korean film set during the Korean War, and was the debut film of director Park Kwang-hyun. The film is based on the long-running play by Jang Jin, and stars Shin Ha-kyun, Jeong Jae-yeong and Kang Hye-jeong.

A U.S. Navy pilot, Neil Smith, is caught in a mysterious storm of butterflies, and crash-lands his plane whilst flying over a remote part of Korea. He is found by local villagers who nurse him back to health. Within the small village (Dongmakgol), time appears to stand still. They have no knowledge of modern technology such as guns and grenades. All the villagers are unaware to the conflict within Korea.

Meanwhile, not far from the village, a platoon of North Korean and South Korean soldiers have an encounter, and the ensuing gunfight leaves most of the North Koreans dead. The surviving soldiers from the North manage to escape through a mountain passage. The North Korean soldiers, Rhee Soo-hwa, Chang Young-hee, and Seo Taik-gi (Ryu Duk-hwan) are found by an odd girl Yeo-il who acts crazy. She leads them to the village where, to their astonishment, they find 2 South Korean soldiers Pyo Hyun-chul and Moon Sang-sang. The South Korean soldiers, who have deserted their units, had also been lead to the village which is housing the injured U S Navy pilot, Smith, by a different villager.

The unexpected encounter causes an armed standoff that lasts for several days. The villagers have no idea what the stir is about, and wonder why the 2 sides are standing there pointing those "sticks" at each other.

"Welcome To Dongmakgol" was South Korea's official entry for the foreign language film category of the Academy Awards in 2005, and it was the fourth-highest grossing South Korean film of all time.

Entry is by tickets of Rs. 100 per head. Please contact 98668-89042 for further details.
