No review just yet, but it looks to be an Unseen Films gathering at the Tribeca Cinema when Dancing Zoo screens Tuesday at 7pm.
The Korean Cultural Service describes the film as follows:
It flew under the radar when it was first released, but since then it’s picked up thousands of passionate underground fans. A riff on A Star is Born mixed with a little bit of Once, this is one of the sweetest, saddest movies about two kids with guitars who fall in love ever made. It’s a familiar story for everyone from struggling Williamsburg singer-songwriters, to Seoul’s underground rockers. Joon-Soo and Hee-Jung meet cute when he’s singing a break-up song to a monkey in the zoo, the two fall for each other and decide to take their relationship to the next level: they start a band together. But one gets successful, while the other falls by the wayside, and it’s not clear that any number of power pop duets can keep them together. If you were ever in a band, this one’s for you.
I call it your last chance to get in on one of the best kept cinema secrets in New York. I'm not going to wax poetic about the films that have screened, hell you've read reviews of most of them here. All I'm going to say is that this is one of the best film series in New York. Sure there have been some misses, but I can't say that any film this year hasn't been interesting and worth seeing on some level. Best of all it's all FREE so you're not out anything.
Any film lover in New York should be attending these screenings.
As always the screening is at the Tribeca Cinema. Doors are at 630. Film at 7pm.
(And YES the series will pick up in 2012)
