Amazon Studios and Magnolia Pictures invite you and a guest to attend a screening of celebrated filmmaker Park Chan-wook’s (OLDBOY, LADY VENGEANCE, STOKER) ravishing new crime drama, THE HANDMAIDEN. Adapted from Welsh author Sarah Waters’ 2002 Victorian-set lesbian romance novel Fingersmith, Park and co-writer Chung Seo-kyung have transposed Waters’ story to 1930s-era colonial Korea and Japan. THE HANDMAIDEN premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, where production designer Ryu Seong-hie was awarded the Vulcain Prize for the Technical Artist, and will also screen as a Special Presentation during the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. Amazon Studios and Magnolia Pictures will release the film on Friday, October 21 in New York and Los Angeles with a national rollout to follow.
THE HANDMAIDEN is the gripping and sensual tale of two women – a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded Korean estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden but is secretly plotting with a conman to defraud her of her large inheritance. Powered by remarkable performances from Kim Min-hee (RIGHT NOW, WRONG THEN) as Lady Hideko, Ha Jung-woo (THE CHASER) as the conman who calls himself the Count and sensational debut actress Kim Tae-ri as the maid Sookee, THE HANDMAIDEN borrows the most dynamic elements of its source material and combines it with Park Chan-wook’s singular vision and energy to create a mesmerizing experience boasting more tangled plots and bodies than an octopus has tentacles.
The American Bankers Association Foundation knows how much teens love to talk about money, or at least their grandiose plans to spend it. Getting students to think critically about their spending habits and understand the importance of saving, however, often poses challenges. That’s why each fall the Foundation holds its annual Lights, Camera, Save! teen video contest. The contest is meant to inspire students to think about what saving means to them while communicating it in a way that speaks to their peers. Students can participate by submitting their short, up to 90 second, savings videos to banks in their area that host a contest. The 2016-2017 contest, open to students between the ages of 13-18, will run from Oct. 1 – Dec. 1. Thanks to this year’s generous sponsor, Discover Debit, the Foundation will award cash prizes of $1,000, $2,500, and $5,000 to three national winners. Additionally, three educator scholarships to the 2017 National Jump$tart Educator Conference will be granted to the top three winning schools. Winners announced March 1, 2017.
