Fantasia International Film Festival
It’s been a while since last there was anything to talk about concerning Oldboy director Park Chan-wook’s new thirty-minute short film Night Fishing, or Paranmanjang for you purists, which he shot using the Apple iPhone. However, now that the flick is getting set to make its Fantasia appearance, we have a trio of new stills for ya!
Paranmanjang, which means a “life full of ups and downs” in Korean, is about a man transcending his current and former lives. He catches a woman while fishing in a river in the middle of the night. They both end up entangled in the line, and he thinks she is dead.
Suddenly, though, she wakes up, strangles him and he passes out. When the woman awakens him, she is wearing his clothing and he hers. She cries and calls him “father.”
The movie, made on a budget of 150 million won ($133,000), was shot using the iPhone 4 and opened in South Korean theaters last January 27, 2011. Park made the 30-minute film with his younger brother, Park Chan-kyong, also a director.
Look for more on Night Fishing soon.
