JOINT SECURITY AREA

Park Chan-wook, Korea, 2000, Arrow Films, Arthouse

Before OLDBOY and THE HANDMAIDEN, legendary filmmaker Park Chan-wook unleashed JOINT SECURITY AREA—a gripping tale of deceit, misunderstanding, and the senselessness of war. When gunfire breaks out in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, two North Korean soldiers are killed, while a wounded South Korean soldier (Lee Byung-hun, THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD) flees to safety. With the tenuous peace between the two warring nations at risk, a neutral team of investigators—led by Swiss Army Major Sophie Jean (Lee Young-ae, LADY VENGEANCE)—is dispatched to determine what really happened. The recipient of multiple accolades (including Best Film at South Korea's 2001 Grand Bell Awards) JOINT SECURITY AREA showcases Park's iconic style in an embryonic form while delivering a stylish, ultra-tense experience as only he can.
