White Wall Cinema: BROKER
November 20 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
This poignant, South Korean drama from Palme d’Or winning Shoplifters director Hirokazu Kore-eda brings joy to the potentially dark subject of ‘baby boxes’, a place where unwanted babies can be anonymously abandoned safely.
Parasite star Song Kang-ho teams with Gang Dong-won as a pair of ‘brokers’ who illegally attempt to sell these abandoned babies on the adoption black market. When young Mother Moon So-young (Lee Ji-eun) reconsiders her decision, the trio set out on a road trip to look for new adoptive parents for her child, whilst slowly becoming an unconventional misfit family in their own right, all the while being trailed by police detective Soo-jin (Bae Doona – The Host). Warm and uplifting but never sentimental thanks to Kore-eda’s precise, naturalistic, tenderly melancholic storytelling style.
