American Hwangap

by Lloyd Suh
directed by Trip Cullman

A new American comedy about a big Korean birthday


Min Suk Chun returns to the ex-wife and family he left 15 years ago in a West Texas suburb, to celebrate his “hwangap” – the Korean expression for the much-revered 60th birthday that marks rebirth. But what’s in store for his next life cycle, if it starts with no pants and a bottle of Jim Beam?
