Decision to Leave – Cinephile Screening

What happens when an object of suspicion becomes a case of obsession?

Winner of Best Director at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, The Handmaiden) returns with a seductive romantic thriller that takes his renowned stylistic flair to dizzying new heights. From a mountain peak in South Korea, a businessman plummets to his death. Did he jump, or was he pushed? When detective Hae-joon (Park Hae-il, The Host) arrives on the scene, he begins to suspect the dead man’s wife Seo-rae (Tang Wei, Lust, Caution) may know more than she initially lets on. But as he digs deeper into the investigation, Hae-joon finds himself trapped in a web of deception and desire, proving that the darkest mysteries lurk inside the human heart.

This Global Event screening will feature a fascinating and entertaining never-before-seen 25-minute conversation between Director Park and Academy Award-winner Bong Joon-ho (PARASITE), where the two master directors candidly discuss the way they each approach their craft.
