I watched the movie on its first screening during the festival at the newly constructed Busan Cinema Center. Aside from being screened in a huge movie theater it was also jam packed with viewers so it was really overwhelming. Plus I got to sit beside an internationally acclaimed Filipina film director, Laurice Guillen. hehe
Other films in the New Currents section were: August Drizzle (Sri Lanka), Choked (Korea), Damn Life (Japan), Here...or There? (Vietnam/Switzerland), I Carried You Home (Thailand/Singapore), Lost in the Mountain (China), The Passion of a Man Called Choe Che-u (Korea), Return to Burma (Taiwan/Myanmar), Starry Starry Night (Taiwan/China/ Hong Kong, China), Watch Indian Circus (India), and The Mirror Never Lies (Indonesia).
The director is now based in New York. An Obie-winning production designer and theater director and a Gawad Buhay-nominated director.
