Film Korea | Out now!45:15Jake and Michael are here with another book launch episode, and then afterwards they're both going to sleep for a long time, and not even think about writing another book for a long, long time. This one's quite different than any of the previous ones though, Film Korea is a journey into 30 key films from one of the most exciting cinematic nations on earth. With only one film to choose from per director, in this live conversation recorded at the book's launch at the Korean Cultural Centre, Jake and Michael talk through the choices they made when putting together the contents of their latest work.
