THE HOUSEMAID
HANYO
1960, Janus Films, 109 min, South Korea, Dir: Kim Ki-young

See the classic that inspired Bong Joon Ho’s PARASITE! The Kims, a hardworking middle-class family, move into a bigger home and need help with the chores. A love letter from one of Mr. Kim’s students leads to a fateful decision - hiring Myung-sook (Lee Eun-shim), a young woman whose provocative behavior turns their drab domestic life into a nightmare of repressed desires, unleashed. Relentless, claustrophobic, and unpredictable; a wicked combination of soap opera, noir, and horror - as amusing as it is shocking. Considered one of the greatest Korean films ever, THE HOUSEMAID was forgotten for more than forty years, until rediscovered through the efforts of Martin Scorsese’s World Cinema Project and the Korean Film Archive.


35 mm!

MY NAME IS JULIA ROSS
1945, Sony Repertory, 65 min, USA, Dir: Joseph H. Lewis

Unemployed Julia (Nina Foch) gets a dream job working for a wealthy widower, only to awaken in a nightmare - married to a man with a scheming mother-in-law (George Macready and Dame May Whitty), neither of whom she’s ever seen before! Director Joseph H. Lewis (GUN CRAZY, THE BIG COMBO) made his mark in Hollywood with this incredibly tense and well-acted mystery thriller, one of the best B films of the era. “She went to sleep as a secretary… and woke up as a madman’s bride!”


THE HOUSEMAID in Korean with English subtitles. Screening format: DCP.
