Claire's Camera (2017)

Film
Thursday, September 20
7 pm
Cost: Free
Free screening of Claire's Camera (2017)

South Korea/France | 79 min | Unrated | DCP | Dir. Hong Sang-Soo

A refreshingly sunny performance from Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher, Elle) is at the center of this comic charmer from South Korean Master Hong Sangsoo. Huppert plays Claire, a school teacher with a camera (that might be magical) on her first visit to Cannes. She happens upon a film sales assistant, Manhee (Kim Minhee), recently laid off after a one-night stand with a film director (Jung Jinyoung). Together, this unlikely pair become detectives of sorts, as they wander around the seaside resort town, working to better understand the circumstances of Manhee's firing—and developing new outlooks on life in the process.

Intricately plotted with wit and charm to spare, CLAIRE'S CAMERA explores the power of images to transform us. "The only way to change things," says Claire, "is to look at them again very slowly."

 

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, Wisconsin Union members and their guests. Anyone can become a Wisconsin Union member
