Join us for a rare screening of a landmark work of 1960s South Korean cinema. A torrent of sexual obsession, revenge, and betrayal is unleashed under one roof in this venomous melodrama from South Korean master Kim Ki-young. Immensely popular in its home country - where it influenced a new generation of South Korean filmmakers - The Housemaid is the thrilling, at times jaw-dropping story of the devastating effect an unstable housemaid has on the domestic cocoon of a bourgeois, morally dubious music teacher, his devoted wife, and their precocious young children. (South Korea, 1960, 109 Mins., Korean with English Subtitles | Dir. Ki-young Kim)
