The Last Vacation (Narrative / DV / 11 min / Color / 2006)by Jae-Ho Chang
Amidst wintry winds and crashing waterfalls, a mother and son contemplate their last remaining moments together on this final journey.
The Last Mermaids (HD / 19 min / Color / 2008) by Liz Chae
Mother to daughter. Generation after generation. The women of Jeju Island have survived by becoming Haenyos (women sea divers). THE LAST MERMAIDS is a short documentary showing these women, aged 45-85, as they dive deep into the ocean -- the refuge that has given them life, shielded them from war and allowed them to educate their daughters. For two thousand years, the Haenyos of Jeju have fought men, governments and armies to protect their right to make a living from the sea. Now they want the tradition to stop. These are The Last Mermaids.
Sports and Diversions (Animation / DVD / 4 min / 2006)by Bum Lee
When you close your eyes and listen to music, what do you see? These animations transform Erik Satie's 1914 classic compositions into their own varied interpretations of the music. Winner of 2006 Little Big Films, Short Film Competition Animation Award.
Bbi (Animation / DVD / 10 min / 2002) by Do Hyung Kim
As society enforces a standardization of everyday life, how do we assert our individuality and what are the consequences?
UNRAVEL (16mm / 7 min / Color / 2006) by Susie Lim
The traditional Korean dress--the hanbok--becomes the intermediary of lineage between young and old.
ISAHN (Video / Color / 16 min / 2004) by Soon-Mi Yoo
ISAHN tells stories of displacement. Images from the stereoscopes at Imjingak in South Korea are mixed with contemporary footage of Burmese refugee camps around Mae Sot, Thailand, in which inhabitants are forced to relocate to yet another anonymous site. For those who are not allowed to go back home, the sights of exile are just ersatz landscapes. Sometimes they may offer consolation. Oftentimes they work as hindrance. Many would say, "When I close my eyes, I can still see my hometown so vividly."
This screening will be followed a discussion with film makers after the screening.

i finally built my website. i know nothing about web design, so i had to rely on the generic template on iWeb. therefore it's a very simple site. the sad thing is that it took me three days to finish it. the best part of this experience was picking out the music for my reel. anyone know who it is? if you do, you and i should be good friends, since you have exceptional taste in music! but if you don't want that (which i don't blame you for) then i can buy you dinner and we can talk about music because you have exceptional taste!
it's a hell of a cover. Billy should be proud. and it's so damn sexy!
someone put together the song with clips from 'My Life to Live'. isn't Anna Karina to die for? why don't women look and dance like that any more?
Nouvelle Vague is pretty much a cover band that puts their "French twist" to the songs. some work, some don't. i also like their version of 'I Melt with You', 'Teenage Kicks' and 'Just Can't Get Enough'.
rock on children!
• current music: what do you think?
was going through some old pictures on my computer and found this.
a couple of things that i have noticed:
i used to look like my mom, but gradually i started looking like my dad.
i had no eyebrows until i was in high school.
the picture of me with the 'butt cut' sporting the turtle neck is the scariest one. and yes, i was very proud of the braces.
i have a very long neck. maybe i was onto something with the turtle necks.
i look like an alien that needs a tan in the picture where i am only wearing a white shirt. take note: the very long neck.
i hope you all had a good laugh.
• current music: Romeo and Juliet - Indigo Girls
i blogged a couple of months ago about my short 'The Last Vacation'. although it did not get enough votes to be shown on Channel 13, it was asked to be part of their Reel New York Film Festival, so it did end up playing! i didn't get to see it because i was at a wedding, but i just got a copy of it yesterday.
i remember the day when i went in for the interview. i was on a shoot all day - tired and dirty. had to come in straight from work late that night for the interview, hence the tired look (or maybe i just look like that everyday).
anyway, here is a clip of me introducing the piece with the film to follow.
i hope you are all doing well. a little doc i made will be part of a program called 'New York Love Stories: loosely interpreted' that will be opening this Friday (22nd / 5pm) at the Two Boots Theater in New York City. i will be at the Saturday screening and would to see you guys there. it's a really strong line up and should be worth your time. if not come for their pizza! below is the info to the screening. hope to see you there!
