The Front Line is South Korea’s official entry in the Best Foreign Language Film portion of the Oscars. It tells the story of a group of South Korean soldiers who attempted to hold a strategic position on the border between North and South Korea, as well as forcibly win a symbolic mountain range for their side.
The Front Line is described as “a story about three million soldiers who fought in the war, not remembering the reason anymore, and died wishing for the end of it.” Seems pretty intense! The Front Line will be making a run in theaters starting January 13th, but it also was a part of a series of free screenings of Korean films in NYC!
