Cannibalistic undead collide with strident social criticism in this engrossing zombie feature from one of South Korea’s most acclaimed animators.

Adolescent Hae-sun has run away from home. But, stuck at Seoul Station, she finds herself caught in the middle of a terrifying viral outbreak when one of the homeless men who sleeps there begins displaying strange symptoms.

Award-winning director Yuen Sang-ho (The King of Pigs, MIFF 12) returns with two, thematically linked, films: the live-action Train to Busan, and its animated prequel, Seoul Station, a visceral, astute blend of horror and social realism. With its expressive animation and voice cast bringing to life its grisly details and poignant emotion equally, Seoul Station is a unique look at modern Korean society.
