Art Fix: FILM

Starting this Friday, Daegu will be hosting it’s 14th annual Independent Short Film Festival. The short film Alone by Matt Root, who was featured in our March 2013 issue, will be showing on September 1st at 4:50 and on September 3rd at 2:40.

Having been able to see the film earlier this year, I can tell you that Alone is riveting. It is a heart-wrenching story of an American expat – Gary – whose life seems to be crushingly mundane. But, behind closed doors, he is consumed with regret over something in his past. Now hooked on anti-depressants, which only somewhat subdue his emotional instability, Gary’s mind begins to take over his reality. Dreams? Hallucinations? You be the judge. This short is definitely worth the price of admission.

Tickets are 5,000 won and can be purchased at the door.
