The Korean Culture Society continues its Free Korean Movie Night with a Free Screening of Forever the Moment .
Synopsis of Forever the Moment:
Probably the world’s only movie about handball, if there’s one film in this series that is going to break your heart, it’s FOREVER THE MOMENT. Based on the true story of Korea’s women’s handball team competing at the 2004 Summer Olympics, it finds a one-time player from the national team recruiting some of her now-middle-aged former teammates when she’s asked to step in to coach the new national team at the last minute. Directed by Lim Soon-Rye, one of the few female directors in Korea, it became a major word-of-mouth hit in 2008, and it remains one of the greatest sports movies ever made, from any country.
