About Time.

Its about time someone finally took advantage of the iPhone’s HD video recording capabilities and made a film with it. Park Chan-Wook, one of my favorite directors and also one of the best out there right now, at least in my opinion, has gone and made a short 30 minute film with an iPhone. Park Chan-Wook is the same director that brought the world OldBoy and Thirst, both of which I loved. Park Chan-Wook’s new short film is called Paranmanjang, when translate it means Ups and Downs, but apparently they’re going with the English title, Night Fishing.

The synopsis is as follows, courtesy of SlashFilm:

…a fantastical tale that begins with a middle-aged man fishing one afternoon and then, hours later at night, catches the body of a woman. The panicked man tries to undo the intertwined fishing line, but he gets more and more entangled. He faints, then wakes up to find himself in the white clothes that the woman was wearing. The movie’s point of view then shifts to the woman and it becomes a tale of life and death from a traditional Korean point of view.

Here’s the really short teaser trailer that they’ve release and also below is the behind the scenes footage.
