TRAIN TO BUSAN (South Korea 2016; NR)
Tuesday October 25, Thursday October 27, Saturday October 29 @ 7:30PM; Sunday October 30 @ 1, 3:25PM.
Coming for Halloween, something you don’t see every day – a zombie film with subtitles and a political subtext! A self-centered hedge fund manager and his little daughter are swept up in national chaos aboard the last train to the port city of Busan, the final bastion of human survival against what is officially described as a lethal pandemic of “rabies.”
118 min. Subtitles.
“Yeon eschews gore for thrilling set pieces: his fleet, imaginative action scenes recall Brad Bird’s crisp transition to real people in peril when he made his “Mission Impossible” movie”-LA Times.
“Pulses with relentless locomotive momentum. As an allegory of class rebellion and moral polarization, it proves just as biting as Snowpiercer, while delivering even more unpretentious fun” – Variety.
“The story moves as fast as that bullet train, careening from one impossible predicament to the next while the characters jostle to survive” – Miami Herald.
“A public-transportation horror movie with a side helping of class warfare” – NY Times.
Direction and screenplay: Sang-Ho Yeon

Rebellious Tunisian teenager Farah (Baya Medhaffer) samples love, resists her parents’ career plans for her, and sings protest songs in a political rock band, as the currents of revolution stir around her. The excitement of risk-taking seems remote from the dangers, but Farah’s mother Heyet knows better… “Sharply yet subtly capturing the atmosphere of fear fostered by the dictatorship of President Ben Ali, this skillfully made drama is especially attuned to the myriad forms of surveillance, from the prurient to the political”- Variety.
102 min. Subtitles.
