Built on empathetic vignettes and casual conversations, Hong Sangsoo’s films are much easier to watch than they are to describe. His 25th film in as many years, INTRODUCTION, revolves around a series of introductions between different characters at different times in their life. Relationships are formed, ideas are shared and soju is drunk as Hong captures it all in his poetic style.

Like CIFF 2020 selection THE WOMAN WHO RAN, INTRODUCTION is a breezy, refreshing film that’ll leave you feeling revitalized. As Variety once said, Hong’s films are “like cracking a window in a stuffy room.”
