Concrete Utopia

TICKETS
Studio/K - Sat 9 March, 14:15

After a massive earthquake reduces Seoul to rubble, the Hwang Gung apartment complex is miraculously the only building left in the city. Overwhelmed and conflicted by what to do with the people seeking shelter at Hwang Gung, residents elect the quiet Young-tak as their leader, who swiftly imposes a set of rules and regulations to bring order to the chaos. What ensues is a life-or-death battle between residents and outsiders, revealing that a new disaster has only just begun.

Concrete Utopia is an enthralling post-apocalyptic blockbuster fused with sharp commentary about social hierarchies and divisions. It is at once a spectacle to behold and a parable that reminds us of the violence lurking behind the promise of utopia. Starring LEE Byung-hun (Squid Game) and PARK Seo-jun (Parasite), Concrete Utopia will keep you on the edge of your seat as the protagonists defend their propertyby any means necessary.
