Venue

Lotus Hall, China in the World Building (188), Fellows Lane, ANU

Date

Friday, 21 May, 2021 - 17:00 to 20:00

Upon driving a German reporter from Seoul to Gwangju, a widowed father and taxi driver soon finds himself caught in the cruel violence and heroic resistance of the 1980 Gwangju Uprising, which compels a reconsideration of everything that he holds dear. A gripping, endearing, and entertaining film based on a true story, A Taxi Driver is a visual and symbolic feast on the themes of individual and society, fate and freedom, and dictatorship and democracy.

Kyung Moon Hwang, professor of Korean history at ANU, will provide a brief introduction to the film and after the screening will hold a Q&A. 

This event is open only to ANU students.
