Hong Sang-soo introduces US exclusive trailer and poster

For an ideal winter vision, the black and white drama of Hong Sang-soo introduction–– the first of two feature films to premiere on the festival circuit this year–– will arrive in the United States in January. His 25th feature film also marks a major achievement for the prolific South Korean author, being his first as a director of photography. Ahead of Cinema Guild’s January 21 release, we’re excited to release the exclusive trailer and poster.

In the film, Youngho (Shin Seokho) goes to see his father who is taking care of a famous patient. He surprises his girlfriend, Juwon (Park Miso), in Berlin where she is studying fashion design. He goes to a seaside hotel to meet his mother and brings his friend Jeongsoo (Ha Seongguk) with him. In each case, he anticipates an important conversation. But sometimes a shared gaze, or a shared smoke, can mean as much as anything we might say to our loved ones.

David Katz said in his review of the Berlinale: “Compared to the recent and more accessible successes of festivals such as On the beach at night alone and The woman who ran, the narrative convolution persists through introduction; we accumulate a lot of details about its central characters, but never enough defining and binding information to make them cohesive. His prolonged and regular takes, here in more washed-out black and white than usual, are like long sentences with no start and end clauses. And there is no mirth or comedic punchline in sight. There is integrity in that, of course.

See the exclusive trailer and poster below.

introduction opens Jan. 21 at Film at Lincoln Center and will expand.
