  • YESTERDAY: The Korean sci-fi action thriller YESTERDAY is a futuristic inquiry into the ethical ramifications of science and technology. In the unified Korea of 2020, world-weary police detective Seok (Seung-woo Kim) and his partner, May (Seon-a Kim), investigate the murders of a group of scientists involved in a decades-long, government-sponsored genetic experiment. When the daring serial killer kidnaps the chief of police, Seok's team is joined by the officer's forensics expert daughter, Hui-su (Yoon-jin Kim), setting into motion a suspenseful game of cat-and-mouse.

    2009: LOST MEMORIES: One of South Korea's top-grossing films, director Si-myung Lee's 2009: LOST MEMORIES blends sci-fi, action, politics, and history into a time-bending thriller which explores issues of national and cultural identity. Set in the year 2009, the film operates in an alternate reality where Japan retained control of its Korean colonies after World War II--and the independent nation of Korea never existed. Masayuki Sakamoto (Dong-Kun Jang) is a Korean police detective comfortably assimilated into this Japanese-occupied state until a routine investigation reawakens his nationalist pride. Assigned to probe a terrorist attack on a museum exhibit displaying historical artifacts, Sakamoto is soon drawn into an underground network of Korean freedom fighters who seek their nation's independence. As Sakamoto's sympathy for the rebel group urges him into action, the Korean grows increasingly at odds with his Japanese best friend and partner, Shojiro Saigo (Toru Nakamura), setting the stage for a tense and bloody showdown.
