Winner for Best Screenplay at the Cannes Film Festival, Poetry follows a Korean woman who develops a passion for poetry as she deals with the onset of Alzheimer's disease.

Cajoled out of a sixteen-year retirement by director Lee, Yun Junghee gives an unforgettable performance as the indefatigable grandmother who must cope not only with her looming illness but also an elderly stroke victim under her care and her surly grandson who has been accused of participating in a gang rape that led to the victim's suicide. (139 mins., 35mm)

Cosponsored by Ohio State's East Asian Studies Center.
