Frame by Frame: Korean cinema from script to screen

Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 17:00

Get ready for this exclusive exhibition of Korean cinema, Frame by Frame, Korean cinema from script to screen is your lead up to the biggest Korean film event in Australia, KOFFIA Korean Film Festival!

The exhibition will be the first to reveal the films for KOFFIA 2013 and give a glimpse into the history of our regular Korean film screening event, Cinema on the Park (COTP). Frame by Frame, Korean cinema from script to screen exhibits the original storyboard of the Box-office hit, Masquerade (2012) drawn by Korean storyboard artist group, Contibrothers, who have recently finished working with Park Chan-wook’s Stoker.

Paralleled with the original storyboard of three selected scenes from the film, new storyboards of these scenes drawn by 6 Australian artists will be exhibited. In order to maximise the artists’ own visualisation of the narrative, they were only supplied the original scenario of the scenes without any other information about the film. The exhibition was initiated from the idea that there is a possibility of shifting visualisations of the same narrative through personal or cultural difference. Thus, the diverse visual interpretations caused by cultural differences and similarities will be investigated through comparing the original storyboard and the interpretations of the Australian artists. Not only that, it also explores the filmmaking process of taking a written scenario and visualising it for the cinema screen.

The major feature films of KOFFIA 2013 are revealed through enormous film posters that will decorate the walls in the Korean Cultural Office. The main trailer for KOFFIA 2013 will also perk your appetite for Korean film before the festival starts. A giant film reel composed of 100 Korean films featured at COTP since its first screening on the 7th of April 2011 also will be featured at the gallery space.

This exhibition has been made possible through the generous participation of 6 artists (Annette Chan, Grace Lin, Lorraine Heller-Nicholas, Samantha Perham, Tosh Wharton-Moorhouse, Yiwon Park) and the support of Contibrothers for the original storyboard.
