CURRENT COMMUNITY EVENTS

HARRIS THEATER
809 Liberty Ave., Downtown :: Now through November 10
Filmmaker Park Chan-wook returns with Decision to Leave where he won the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Hotshot Busan detective Hae-jun’s latest case finds him staring deep into the eyes of a dead hiker and then up at the cliff from which he fell. Was this an accident or was foul play involved? This is the riddle he must unravel when he interrogates the man’s Chinese wife, Seo-rae, a caretaker who doesn’t seem particularly heartbroken by the tragedy. Hae-jun dives headfirst into the case, but as he looks deep into Seo-rae’s eyes for answers, a different truth is beginning to build within him. The film is spoken in Korean and Mandarin languages with English subtitles.

Decision to Leave is showing now through November 10 at the Harris Theater, 809 Liberty Avenue, Downtown.
