PIFF Day 3: Karn Yimou

proud-pooh1

Today was the world premiere of Eternity.  It’s fitting that Karn’s photo happens to be right underneath his hero Zhang Yimou in the PIFF director credit roll.  He is about to screen his first feature and Mr. Yimou is about to screen his twentieth.  So you could say in between those twenty films lies a director’s career.  We are all proud of Karn.  He is on his way.

The screening was in Lotte Cinemas 6 and 7.  For the longest time we couldn’t figure out how the festival could be showing the movie in two theaters at the same time when they have only one print.  Turns out the theaters are opposite each other and share the same projection room.  So the film winds its way through two projectors for two screens in one big loop.

The screening went well, the only complaint being that Lotte 6 crops a little off the edges of the frame.  But this is a minor thing.  Lotte 6 is huge, the biggest screen they have, and it was a joy to be able to see our work blown up that big after watching it on an Apple computer for the past six months.  After the lights went up, we went down for Q and A.

Karn seemed a little grumpy answering questions.  Turns out that cropping a little off the edge of the frame is not a minor thing for a director.  Way to go Karn, no compromises.  Zhang Yimou wouldn’t be okay with it either, so you got a point there.  Anyway, the audience seemed to really appreciate the film.  Many girls even asked Karn for his autograph.

Ahhh, it’s nice to be a director, even if it’s only a first step.
