Thank You for another successful Film Festival!
Thank you for making our 21st Annual Rochester Film Festival a success. We would like to thank all of our sponsors, partners and everyone who came out to see the films.
Our festival would not be possible without the participation of the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul and by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
Next iFilm: MY LOVE, DON'T CROSS THAT RIVER Nov 9th, 6:00pm at Rochester Public Library
DIRECTED BY JIN MOYOUNG SOUTH KOREA 2014 KOREAN WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES
SYNOPSIS 100-year old Lovebirds" Byong-man Jo and Gye-Yeul Kang have been inseparable companions for the past 76 years. Living in their small home by the river, they wear traditional Korean clothes, go shopping at the local market, have picnics with neighbors, and enjoy dance parties. Every night they go to sleep holding each other's hands. Observing this fragile couple for 15 months, director Moyoung Jin acts as a fly-on-the-wall, capturing their twilight days with tender moments that reveal simple acts of affection - from a good-natured leaf fight to a gentle caress of the cheek. A blockbuster in its native Korea, where it would go on to become the country's biggest independent film of all time, MY LOVE, DON'T CROSS THAT RIVER presents an unforgettable story of true love that transcends both generations and cultures.
