Presented in a beautiful restoration and newly translated, Hong Sangsoo's breakthrough second feature The Power of Kangwon Province is an early masterwork from the prolific filmmaker. Playing with structure, perspective, and time – elements that would become hallmarks of his later work – the film follows a young woman, Jisook, who, fresh off her relationship with a married man, joins two girlfriends for a vacation in the mountainous Kangwon region and quickly makes the same mistakes, tumbling into bed with a married policeman. The film then shifts to her ex, Sangwon, who happens to be visiting the same region at the same time, threatening to cross Jisook's path.
