We’re very excited about the New York Asian Film Festival over here (understatement), and it’s less than two weeks away! One of the more anticipated films playing is Bedevilled, a Korean film that’s coming at us with a ton of acclaim.
Winner of multiple film festival awards, Bedevilled star Seo Young-Hee took home six “Best Actress” awards for her performance as a woman who ventures back to her childhood home on a remote island: an untamed hellhole populated by a handful of ruddy-faced men and old women bleached orange by the sun. It’s a misogynistic anti-Eden where the women work in the fields from dawn to dusk and prey on each other in competition for the savage, square-faced brutes they call their men. And when tragedy strikes, their sick little island paradise will never be the same. The film’s cast also includes Ji Seong-Won, Seo Young-Hee, Park Jung-Hak, Jo Duk-Je and Je-Min.

We have two pairs of tickets to give away. The film will be playing twice during the fest, on Wednesday July 6th at 8:45 pm and Sunday July 10th at 7:00 pm, so make sure you can make one of those!
