Three digital shorts drawn from the 2009 Jeonju International Film Festival in South Korea. Hong Sang-soo (Woman on the Beach) directed the slyly humorous Lost in the Mountains (33 min.), in which a young writer from Seoul impulsively drives to Jeonju, rekindles an affair with an old professor, and as a result upends her relationships with two close friends. Naomi Kawase's wispy, allusive Koma (34 min.) follows a Japanese-Korean man on his journey to the legendary Mount Miwa region, where he's drawn to an ethereal beauty. And in Lav Diaz's sluggishly paced, poorly acted Butterflies Have No Memories (58 min.), an affluent Canadian encounters social unrest after returning to her declining hometown in the Philippines. All three films are subtitled.
