Synopsis

DIRECTOR: Lee Chang-dong

WITH: Ah-in Yoo, Steven Yeun, Jong-seo Jeon

Fresh from this year’s Cannes Film Festival comes Burning, an audacious film about class and sexual longings, based on the short story Barn Burning by Haruki Murakami. Jong-soo, a part-time worker, runs into Hae-mi, a girl who once lived in his neighbourhood. She asks him to watch her cat while she is on a trip to Africa. After Hae-mi returns, JongSoo is dismayed when she introduces him to Ben, a mysterious man she met on the trip. One day, when Ben visits Jong-soo he confesses his own secret hobby.

The Cambridge Film Festival is presented by the Cambridge Film Trust, a registered charity with a mission to foster film culture and education for the benefit of the public, in Cambridge and the Eastern region but also throughout the UK.
