[Fourth Yujae Special Lecture] by Mr. Chang-dong Lee (June 11, 2019)
The fourth Yujae Special Lecture held on June 11th was given by a movie director, Chang-dong Lee with the title of “Burning, the World with Full of Ambiguity”. “Burning (2018)” directed, produced and co-written by Chang-dong Lee is a film about three young people living independent lives. In the film, the director described the ambiguity and boundlessness of the present world through metaphor and symbolism. The audience and the director discussed the ambiguity and boundlessness of the world as well as the chaotic world we live in. Based on the short story "Barn Burning" from The Elephant Vanishes by author Haruki Murakami, the audience shared their own way of interpretation between the film and the original novel.
