Korean Film Festival

This year’s festival features 17 films with screenings at the Freer and Sackler Gallery and the AFI Silver Theatre through June 8. The documentary “Old Partner,” a surprise box office hit in South Korea, chronicles an unlikely love triangle between an elderly farming couple and their . . . ox. While it does offer comic relief, the film is also a piercing look at a quickly vanishing way of life in South Korea.
