Free Film Screening: Lady Chatterley (2006)
June 12, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm KST
This month, we will be screening films celebrating female sexual liberation, highlighted in the documentary #FEMALEPLEASURE, screened and discussed last Wednesday in collaboration with the Lectureship Program of the Robert Bosch Stiftung in Asia (German Foundation) and Hankuk University of Foreign Studies – Lucia (Robert Bosch Stiftung).
This Wednesday, we will be screening the French adaptation of Lady Chatterley’s Lover (With English Subtitles).
Lady Chatterley is a French film directed by Pascale Ferran and based on D. H. Lawrence’s original novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover. Being the first film version of this novel to be directed by a woman, Lady Chatterley details the story of a woman whose husband became disabled and paralyzed from the waist down in the turmoils of the First World War. After having to tend for her husband ceaselessly, Lady Constance Chatterley is finally able to hire a nurse for him and escape the depressions induced by being at his service. In her freedom, she meets a pheasant keeper named Parkin who had also recently escaped a stifling marriage. At first, Parkin is irritated with Constance’s frequent visits but soon, and almost inevitably, the two develop an intense attraction towards one another.
Our arts film program will provide many opportunities throughout the year to view classic and contemporary films from around the world. Through screenings, scholarly notes, and local filmmaker discussions, the program encourages viewers to learn more about the history of the cinema, the role of art in films, and how films reflect society.
