Film Screening

Christmas in August

Directed by Hur Jin-ho
22 February 2008

The Film was shot in a regional city called Gunsan and centers on a small photgraphy shop owned by the main character(Han Suk-kyu). We learn soon into the film that he has a disease which leaves him only a short time to live. Nonetheless, the director chooses to focus on the more common aspects of his life: portrait-taking,rinking with friends, spending time with father and sister. At this time he meets Darim(Shim Eun-ha), a meter reader who drops by his studio to develop pictures of parking violators. As she becomes part of his daily routine he finds himself becoming more and more attached to her.
