The Massachusetts Multicultural Film Festival presents Futureless Things (dir Kim Kyung-mook, South Korea, 2014, 107 min, Korean w/English subtitles).

Introduction by Changwook Kim, doctoral candidate, Communication Dept., UMass Amherst.

This comedy covers a day in the intertwined lives of young clerks working at the same convenience store. The film exposes the private joys and frustrations of usually invisible people, employed in the most banal of spaces, revealing a fascinating world of college dropouts, North Korean defectors, dreamers, and social outcasts barely managing a living in the interstices of a highly consumerist South Korea.

The event is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by the Communication Dept. More information about the film is available here.
