Film Screening – Fukuoka

November 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Emergent Visions Fall 2019 Poster

Directed by: Zhang Lu
Q&A with Director following the screening, moderated by Peng Hai, PhD Candidate, East Asian Languages and Civilizations

Hae-hyo and Jea-moon were very good friends in college, eventually going their separate ways after falling in love with the same girl. They have not seen or heard from each other ever since. As time passes and Jea-moon approaches middle age, the memory of his college life becomes ever more refreshed, and begins to haunt him more and more. At this moment, a strange girl, So-dam, not only intrudes into his quiet second-hand bookstore, but also disturbs his life, urging him to set out on a long journey to Japan to look for Hae-hyo. In Japan, when the three of them finally meet in a local pub, can the problems of their past be reconciled?
