Past Lives

From Fri 08 to Thu 21 Sep
New Releases

A budding childhood romance between Nora and Hae Sung, classmates at a primary school in Seoul, ends abruptly when Nora’s family emigrates to Canada. Twelve years later, Nora, now a playwriting student in New York, notices that Hae Sung’s been searching social media for her. They reconnect online, and even imagine a reunion. Although their lives have changed dramatically, they remain bound by an inalterable childhood connection.

An aching, deeply romantic debut feature from playwright Celine Song, whose sense of image and sound, deeply felt character writing, and spellbinding actor directing, lead to a profound exploration of love, identity, and ‘In Yun,’ a Korean notion of fate stemming from two people’s connection in a past life.
