The Korean Cultural Centre in London is hosting another series of free film screenings and this one is called, Patchworks: Unwrapping My Korean Cinema. The latest film is a documentary about a knitting club but there’s more to it including the bonds that members of this club make and creating a union. The screening takes place on August 03rd from 19:00.
Here’s information on the first film in this season as pulled from the website:
Hangul: 야근 대신 뜨개질
Running Time: 105 mins.
Release Date: September 19th, 2015
Director: Park So-hyun,
Writer: Park So-hyun (Screenplay),
Starring: Nana, Ppaek, Joo-i
Synopsis from the website: When a group of women working in an office get bored with the hardened angry faces that they meet on their way to work on the grey urban mornings of their city commute, they decide to do something about it. In an effort to make the city a happier place for all, they start a knitting club.
“Coming to work in the morning, everyone is stone faced in this cold grey city… wouldn’t it be great to do something to make people smile?”
As the women become closer friends they realise that they have more in common than they thought. With an inspiring soundtrack and presenting a beautiful way in which people can come together, this documentary is an inspiration for change and for creating alternative platforms for discussion.
“Going from knitting that changes the city, to knitting that changes lives.”

Can’t you tell from my avatar that I would like this? I’ll have to see if I can get a screening at our Textile Center.
Although I have a minor complaint in that the needlework shown is actually crochet. Maybe, later in the complete film, they knit.
I had no idea. I can just about sew! In a zombie apocalypse, you’d survive because you have skills and I’d be amongst the first to die, haha.
In all seriousness, the older I get the more I’m trying to learn how to do practical things like this plus I am interested in the social aspects of the group of co-workers coming together.
