White Wall Cinema presents




DIRECTOR: Celine Song

STARRING: Greta Lee, Teo Yoo, John Magaro.

Celine Song’s remarkable debut (a 2024 Oscars Best Picture nominee no less!) concentrates on two close childhood friends, Nora Moon and Hae Sung, who are separated when Nora’s family emigrate to Toronto. Many years later and now living in New York Nora discovers Hae Sung has been trying to contact her and the two rekindle their friendship online. What follows is an entirely modern romance movie that forgoes the normal clichés and sets about forging an more understated route through its central characters inner lives as Nora (now married to Arthur) must reckon with the larger meaning of her friendship to Hae Sung. Past Lives offers mature meditations on fate, friendship, love, and the large collection of very small choices we all make that combine to create our lives.
