The Oklahoma City University Film Institute’s series will continue at 2 p.m. Feb. 10 with So Yong Kim’s “Treeless Mountain” in the Kerr McGee Auditorium of Meinders School of Business. The school is located at NW 27 and McKinley Avenue.

Admission to all films in the series is free to the public. The series is supported in part by the Thatcher Hoffman Smith Endowment Fund and endowments through OCU and the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.

A winner of many international awards, including the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the 2009 Berlin Film Festival, “Treeless Mountain” luminously renders the experience of childhood. When their mother needs to leave in order to find their estranged father, 6-year-old Jin and her younger sister, Bin, are left to live with their Big Aunt for the summer.

With only a small piggy bank and their mother's promise to return when it is full, the two young girls are forced to acclimate to changes in their family life. Counting the days, and the coins, the two bright-eyed young girls eagerly anticipate their mother's homecoming.
