PIFF Day 4: Hi-So Party

hi-so-party

Yesterday saw the premiere of Eternity and today was the premiere of Hi-So.  Again, we screened in Lotte Cinemas 6 and 7 and again, the screen cropped a little off the edges.  But unlike Karn, Juke was okay with it because as usual…he wasn’t in the cinema.  In 2007, as Wonderful Town unspooled for the first time, he was sitting in Dunkin’ Donuts.  This time he was sitting in the hall. 

But regardless of whether he wants to watch Hi-So for the 51st time, today was special because all the people who supported the film were in attendance.  That means they flew from Thailand to be here.  Along with Juke and Tongdee, there were our producers P’ Teng and P’ Jiab, and our star Ananda, who all arrived this morning.  And of course the rest of the Pop Pictures team.

The screening went well and the cinema was packed.  After the lights went up, the audience who were watching in the smaller cinema Lotte 7 even came rushing over to the bigger Lotte 6 to join Juke’s Q and A.  Or so he wishes.  Actually, most of the people rushing over were young women who were definitely not there to listen to Juke but to see Ananda. 

After the screening P’ Teng hosted a lovely dinner at the Japanese restuarant in the Paradise Hotel.  It was invite only, arranged seating, all that jazz.  Definitely very hi-so.  We counted five different kinds of alcohol: beer, soju, regular wine, Jap plum wine, and a viscuous blackberry wine that looked like tonkatsu sauce but actually tasted really good.

After finishing all the drinks and raw fish and after many toasts and photos, we all stumbled our way to Minami again.  You know what?  A) we have no idea what time it was and B) we have no idea how we even got there, whether on foot or by cab.  It must have been about midnight happy hour by then which brings up C) how did we even manage to get a table?

But in the end, everyone had a great time.  This is the wonderful thing about film festivals.  Squeezed into our table were Thai filmmakers, Malaysian filmmakers, Korean stars, and French short film programmers.  P’ Teng spent most of the time arguing French cinema with these guys.  He told them “French Cinema is kind of hard to watch”.  Heh heh.
