A fisherman is waiting to catch something from
a remote pond under the full moon. When he
reels in a big catch, he’s amazed to see that it’s not
a fish but a young woman. She begins to talk to him
about his lost daughter. The woman is a shaman who
mediates between the worlds of the living and the dead.
There are not many 30 minutes films that get that much
media attention as Night Fishing. It makes sense if you
know we’re talking about Chan-wook “Old Boy” Park,
who shot the film together with his brother Chan-kyong
Park for 130,000 dollar on an iPhone 4. They put lenses
on the phones and had some intensive postproduction
done on the images. The result, awarded with a Golden
Bear at the 2011 Berlinale, is a visually rich and intriguing
addition to Park’s body of work. With a soundtrack
by UhUhBoo Project, also responsible for the score for
Park’s Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance.
