Nora and Hae Sung, two deeply connected childhood friends, are wrest apart after Nora’s family emigrates from South Korea. Decades later, they are reunited in New York for one fateful week as they confront notions of destiny, love and the choices that make a life, in this heartrending modern romance. Past Lives uses the bonds between its sensitively sketched central characters to support trenchant observations on the human condition in this debut from writer-director Celine Song.
A post-film discussion will be held immediately following the screening led by Christina Klein.
Christina Klein is a professor of English, American Studies, and Asian Studies at Boston College, where she teaches a class on Korean Film and Popular Culture. Her most recent book is Cold War Cosmopolitanism: Period Style in 1950s Korean Cinema..
