Crossroads Of Youth At The Barbican

As part of All Eyes On Korea, the Barbican is holding a rare screening of the oldest surviving film from Korea's silent period, Crossroads Of Youth.

Set in 1934, the film is a drama about a brother and sister, Young-bok and Young-ok, who move from their rural home in the countryside to Seoul, hoping to find better lives and prosperity. But the corruption of the city preys upon the innocent.

It was directed by Ahn Jong-hwa and stars Lee Wan-yong and Shin Il-seon as the two siblings.

With live musical accompaniment, this special screening gives viewers the chance to experience the film just as the Korean audiences did when it was premiered in 1934.

The screening will take place on 2 August, 2012 at 2.30PM in Cinema 1 at the Barbican.

Tickets are £10 and can be booked through the Barbican's website.
