ANU Korea Institute Film Night (students only): A Taxi Driver

Wednesday, May 5, 2021

The Australian National University (ANU) Korea Institute invites current students to a film screening of A Taxi Driver.

Upon driving a German reporter from Seoul to Gwangju, a widowed father and taxi driver soon finds himself caught in the cruel violence and heroic resistance of the 1980 Gwangju Uprising, which compels a reconsideration of everything that he holds dear. A gripping, endearing, and entertaining film based on a true story, A Taxi Driver is a visual and symbolic feast on the themes of individual and society, fate and freedom, and dictatorship and democracy.

Kyung Moon Hwang, professor of Korean history at ANU, will provide a brief introduction to the film and, after the screening will hold a Q&A.

What: Film screening of A Taxi Driver

Where: Lotus Hall at China in the World, Building 188, Fellows Lane, ANU

When: 5-8pm, Friday, 21 May 2021

This screening is open only to ANU students.
