The newly installed exhibit in the East Asian Reading Room (SML second floor) features resources for the study of Korean film. Please come and take a look!
All of the visually exciting books and journals on display are recent donations from the Korean Film Council (Seoul), part of a shipment of 80 volumes of print materials in English and Korean and over 300 feature films on DVD that came to Yale under the terms of a grant. Yale’s successful application for status as a Korean Film Council “hub” library was organized by the Film Studies Program, Film Study Center, and the East Asia Library. This status allows us to request additional books and DVDs annually. The materials will support the academic study of East Asian film in the program at Yale.
Thanks to Youngaie Kim for masterminding the exhibit and Tang Li for logistical support. The exhibit will be on view until mid-February.
