San Francisco Film Society to Host "The Host"'s Bong

The San Francisco Film Society will host “The Host” director Bong Joon-ho Monday night for screenings of his films “Memories of Murder” (San Francisco Int’l Film Festival, 2004) and “Barking Dogs Never Bite” at Landmark’s Clay Theatre. “While his exhilarating third feature, the blockbuster monster film ‘The Host’ confirms director Bong Joon-ho’s place in the pantheon of genre benders, audiences at his policier ‘Memories of Murder’ witnessed the emergence of one of Korea’s leading filmmakers,” commented Linda Blackaby, the Film Society’s director of programming in a statement. “We are so pleased to welcome him back to San Francisco. His first feature ‘Barking Dogs Never Bite’ has been hitherto unavailable here so I’ll certainly be in the front row.” [Brian Brooks]
