About the Program

Columbus, directed by Kogonada, revolves around Jin, a Korean-born man who becomes stranded in Columbus, Indiana, due to his architect father's coma. In this small Midwestern town, he encounters Casey, a young woman with her own struggles. Casey wishes to stay in Columbus to support her recovering addict mother, deferring her own aspirations. As Jin and Casey form a unique connection, the film explores themes of identity, responsibility, and the choices we make in the face of familial and personal challenges. The architectural backdrop of Columbus serves as a metaphor, reflecting the characters' journey of self-discovery and the intersections of their lives.
