PIFF Day 5: The Elders

kim-dong-ho-group

This year’s festival was the 15th edition which marked the retirement of festival director Kim Dong Ho.  Normally he is already really busy, making it a point to show up at every event, but this year was even more hectic, as he had so many more interviews to do regarding his farewell.  Lucky for us, we bumped into him on the street outside the Novotel.

Everybody likes Director Kim.  How can you not like someone who shows up every year at the Wide Angle Party and dances with the filmmakers until midnight?  In his younger days he used to dance on the tables too (though that was before our time).  In 2007, he invited Juke and Tongdee to drink with the Pusan municipal bigwigs.  It was like the Godfather or something.

Anyway, besides Director Kim, this year we also got to pay respect to Directors Kiarostami and Hou.  Abbas told Karn, “dude, I like your film a lot, it’s a little slow-moving, but it’s good”.  And Hou told Karn “dude, your film reminds me a lot of my own stuff.  If you ever come to the south of Taiwan, look me up, I’ll introduce you to some municipal bigwigs”.

As another year comes to a close at Pusan, our New Currents director pays respect to his elders.
