It is opening night at the Dole Cannery, the lines are already starting to fill up for the films showing this night and the atmosphere is great. I am an eager number two in line for one of the first films showing, Turning point. The film is build up by five short films about a turning point in the lives of four very different people, from different cultures and places around the world.
The short films are all of very different character, all with very different ethnical and social backgrounds. It tells us about these five main characters lives, and their destinies. Even though the five films are far apart, you do end up with a feeling that people are not that different, and it doesn’t matter where you are from – people are very similar in the end, and have the same feeling and thoughts.
The five different films where:
The busy young psychic directed by Ho-Yu Chen
Anatomy of assistance directed by Cory Bowles
My dream, Greco-Roman directed by Bongkeun Kwon
A better tomorrow directed by Mitsuyo Miyazaki
The amber amulet directed by Matthew Moore
A good and interesting series of films with a lot of insight. I must admit I have not seen anything similar to this one. It really made me think about the different stories and their differences, yet similarities.
Here are two of the trailers:
