gorinchem Another seven weeks and then the International Film Festival Gorinchem (IFFG) will be held again. From April 13-17, the IFFG will color theaters in the fortified city. After a canceled online edition, the hall doors are now open again. In the lead up to the annual festival, the organization is programming two other gems of film at the Theater de Nieuwe Doelen. On February 28, the IFFG will begin its first movie night on Monday with a major title. Minari is one of last year’s most acclaimed films.
The American Dream attracts people to the United States from all over the world, including the Korean Yi family. They exchange urban life in rural Arkansas, where Jacob, the father of the family, has purchased a plot of land. He hopes the farm will give them a better life, but the new environment brings many challenges. However, they try to find a way in the farm life together. But when Grandma suddenly moves in with them, the family is really tested.
Director Lee Isaac Chung based his film largely on his childhood in a Korean-American family in the countryside. His parents fled South Korea to build a better life in America, as many other families did at the time. Minari was nominated for hundreds of film awards last year, including six Academy Awards.
On the evening of Monday, February 28, this must-see movie can be seen on the big screen at IFFG’s Cinematic Monday Night, 19:45 at the Theater de Nieuwe Doelen. Tickets and more information at www.iffg.nl
