(Film Screening Friday, February 2, 5:30 p.m. Peter’s Education Center Auditorium west of Save Mart Center in the Student Recreation Center Building)

February 2: Columbus (2017)
Discussant: Andrew Miano (Producer)

When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin (John Cho) finds himself stranded in Columbus, Indiana - a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey (Haley Lu Richardson), a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin's estranged relationship with his father, and Casey's reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother. With its naturalistic rhythms and empathy for the complexities of families, Korean director Kogonada's debut film Columbus unfolds as a gently drifting, deeply absorbing conversation. With strong supporting actors Parker Posey, Rory Culkin, and Michelle Forbes, Columbus also reveals its director’s striking eye for the way physical space can affect emotions. In English and Korean with English subtitles, 1 hour and 44 minutes.
