Reviews of films (world cinema – especially Japanese and Korean) and occasionally dramas, book reviews, travel commentary, and once I get a digital camera (or an in-house darkroom) photography. Possibly other things as inspiration strikes.
Note: I do watch dramas (j and k mostly) and anime as well, and read a few manga/manhwas in between too, but I’m mostly film-focused on Otherwhere. I would love to recap some dramas or regularly reflect on some anime (like the awesome つり球/ Tsuritama) but I haven’t got time for everything.
- Trailer Weekly (posted Sundays): links to film trailers that have caught my eye for some reason or another. These will generally be films that have not yet screened and I myself am interested in seeing (though I might not, due to constraints of time and money). On occasion I will also include older film trailers.
- K-Directors (posted at the beginning of each month in 2012): The KCCUK (London) is showcasing Korean cinema in its “2012: Year of the 12 Directors” Korean Film Night programme this year. I will be posting details for each month here, including information on screening dates, synopses, trailers, film posters here.
- Events Post (posted at the beginning of each month): a round-up of events in the UK. The focus is on Japanese and Korean film screenings (film festivals, cinematic releases, TV), although occasionally I will include other types of events. Other Asian films will be listed as well, although I am unlikely to be as complete in the coverage (I keep a close eye on Japanese and Korean events, others I mostly stumble across). If you see anything you I should include, leave a message (either below or via a comment on the Events post).
There are all kinds of pages on Otherwhere, but one you might find particularly useful is the yearly schedule for (South East) Asian Film Releases for the UK.
Languages: Deutsch, English, español, nederlands/vlaams. Just starting to learn 한국 and 日本語. Hopefully português in the near(er) future. And one day I might revive that high school français…
Location: Currently London-based, but occasionally swinging over to the European continent or Asia. And happily elsewhere, if the chance so arises.
