Save the Green Planet!... Guest Curated by Ari Aster Director of Hereditary
Thu, August 9, 7:30 pm
Bing Theater

"Veering wildly between white-knuckle suspense, slapstick humor, grim horror and a deeply felt (and earned) sense of tragedy, Save the Green Planet should probably be totally incoherent. In fact, it's one of the most brilliant dark comedies this side of Kind Hearts and Coronets, and a shining star among South Korea's teeming collection of genre-mashing gems. It's amazing."  - Ari Aster

These puppets are going to be brutal. They sure ain't the Muppets. If you grew up in the 80's or 90's or just have  been watching movie channels late at night you've probably seen the Puppet Master series. A series of films where puppets with different gimmicks like hooks for hands or a drill for a head murder people. Well, after years of being shelved their back and more brutal than ever.
