ABIGAIL HARM @Digiplex Destinations w/Filmmaker Q&A

Synopsis (Brian Hu, Artistic Director of Pacific Arts Movement):
Abigail Harm (Amanda Plummer) reads books to the blind. But there’s one story in particular that she can’t get out of her head, a Korean folktale about a woodcutter who saves a deer, who in turns tells its savior how to win the undying love of a nymph. Before long, the folktale appears to come alive in Abigail’s New York apartment, with Will Patton as an intruder saved by Abigail, and Tetsuo Kuramochi as a nymph, seemingly dropped to the city from another world. Abigail decides to put the folktale to the test, and finds herself in a bind as alien as the stories she reads to her clients.

Director Lee Isaac Chung (who made a splash internationally with his Rwanda-set debutMunyurangabo) resurrects this traditional Korean folktale in a strangely muted, quietly post-apocalyptic New York, bathing the characters in a lyricism that is not so much romantic as entranced by the possibility of love taking on new shapes. Plummer, with her big, frightened smiles, beautifully plays off Kuramochi’s blank stares. Her speech, like that of the film’s narrator, is hypnotic in its circularity and rarely rises louder than a whisper. ABIGAIL HARM mirrors the wandering yearnings of Plummer’s sleepwalking steps and shifting glances, opening its eyes and not knowing which reality is about to set in. –Brian Hu

    It was an interesting movie. I am glad I saw it but found it somewhat confusing and like it was an experiment that didn't entirely work. I think the acting was very good and the Q & A after helped somewhat.

    Eric,
    Is tonight's movie at the Hillcrest Landmark or Hazard Center Digiplex, i.e. the info contained in the meetup is contradictory?
    Thanks.

      If you have ex tix, I may have a friend. Let me know?

      April 23, 2013

    • Eric31

      The extra will now go to you. I have it counted as a guest toward me but the ticket is now for your guest of course. Easier this way than changing the settings.

    My mother is very ill. So sorry I won't make it but hopefully someone else on the wait list can go.

    Eric, are you going to post an airing of Comrade Kim? I think I'll try going Monday, April 21.

    April 11, 2013

      Stephen, I will not be posting the event because I have other commitments that day. If you would like to post it that would be great. Tix are $11.50. Group discount requires a pre-purchase of 10 or more online. Thanks for asking Stehen.
