Program Note

Twenty-seven and a half fantastic intertwined stories show with sarcasm the reality of unique characters : After years, Frake, The Magician, made the best trick of all time but even he was fooled. Justus Barnes decided to rob a bank but failed miserably. Thomas quit smoking. Annie survived a trip over Niagara Falls inside a barrel. The man who couldn’t cry. And many more...

Program Note

In the nostalgic atmosphere of an old theater, 27 and a half short stories unfold on the screen. These stories may seem unrelated at first, but delving deeper, we discover the peculiar interconnectedness between their beginnings and endings. True to its title, these very short stories are crafted with meticulous attention to each story’s setting, showcasing the director’s passion and precision. Watching the film, we find ourselves applauding from the old theater seats, appreciating the director’s dedication to every single frame. (Kani KIM)
