screenings. Visitors in 2008 included American auteur Arthur Penn, American independent
filmmakers David Gordon Green (George Washington) and Lance Hammer (Ballast), German
director Jan Schütte (Love Comes Lately), Irish director John Boorman (The General),
and Korean filmmaker Lee Chang-dong (Secret Sunshine), as well as avant-garde filmmakers
