About this event
South Korean filmmaker Lee Chang-dong’s new film has been hailed a masterwork. A sublime mystery thriller of obsessive love based on Haruki Murakami’s short story ‘Barn Burning’, it follows Jong-soo (Yoo Ah-in), an isolated young man living in Seoul. When accosted by Hae-mi (Jeon Jong-seo), a childhood friend from the village they grew up in close to the North Korean border, they begin a relationship. But when she returns from a trip away, she’s accompanied by wealthy, urbane
Ben (Steven Yeun), with whom she is apparently in love. Chang-Dong develops a mysterious world of immense power in this epic, slow-burning film exploring masculinity, class conflict and romantic obsession.

Visiting Dartington Hall
Dartington is an old place with a new story.
The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.
This idea is as true today is it ever was.
