From January 18 until February 25, CINEMATEK is holding a Hong Sang-soo retrospective. On the occasion of this program, the publication Hong Sang-soo. Infinite Worlds Possible will be available at CINEMATEK. This modest publication – compiled, edited and published by Sabzian, Courtisane and CINEMATEK – aims to trace the development of Hong’s remarkable body of work through a collection of essays and interviews that were written, among others, by Jean-Michel Frodon, Claire Denis, Joachim Lepastier, James Quandt, Roger Koza and Jacques Aumont. Assembled for the first time, they give an enlightening insight into his cinematic universe, which keeps expanding as a variety of variations on an aphorism that he himself has sketched out in one of his drawings: infinite worlds are possible. Go get your copy!
The Hong Sang-soo retrospective in Brussels (January 18 to February 25, 2018) is an initiative of CINEMATEK and Courtisane, in collaboration with the Korean Cultural Center in Brussels and Cinea. You can find our selection of the program here.
