About
The Embassy of the Republic of Korea presents the annual Korean Film Festival from 6 to 9 June at the Alliance Française. Korean Cinema has seen a spectacular boom in recent years. The Festival will open with the film ‘Train to Busan’ which premièred at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016. This live-action film by independent animator Yeon Sang-ho is about a zombie outbreak on a high-speed train. It topped the yearly box office (11.6 million admissions), and made a particular impression abroad.

A variety of yoga classes and meditations — for all levels — will be offered over four days at 10 unique venues and studios. From early-bird yoga on the beach to meditation under the moon, the festival offers something for everyone, including new experiences for long-time practitioners.

Highlights include a dhow sail, workshops, fun competitions, and a grand finale beach party with Lamu drummers and acrobats.
