Korean Film Fest begins at Nat’l Museum today

The three-day Korean Film Festival 2022 begins at the Bangladesh National Museum in the capital today.

State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid will inaugurate the festival at 5:00pm. Ambassador Lee Jang-keun of the Republic of Korea will deliver opening remarks on the occasion.

A total of five movies will be screened at this year’s festival. The film ‘Escape from Mogadishu’ will be shown in the opening day. The film is based on a real event in the early 1990s in Somalia when South and North Korean embassy staff and their families made a joint perilous escape from the war-torn city.

 Two movies ‘The Dude in Me’ and ‘The Battle of Gangsari’ will be screened on November 3 and the audience will enjoy the films ‘Underdog’ and ‘The Age of Shadows’ on November 4, the last day of the festival.
