About the Film:

Part of Seoul Cinema 2015 

Directed by Chang Hyung-yun. South Korea. 2014. 81 min. Korean with English subtitles. Recommended for ages 8+.

Award-winning director Chang Hyung-yun brings us an exuberantly outrageous, comic sci-fi romance unlike anything before it. An orbiting female satellite picks up a lovelorn pop song on her radio antenna and descends to Earth to try to discover who could be the source of such heartfelt emotions. On the way, she is transformed into the Satellite Girl, complete with Astro Boy-like rocket shoes and weapon-firing limbs, while the balladeer in question—a loser twenty-something playing at an open mic in a coffee shop—meets the fate that befalls all broken-hearted lovers: he is turned into a cow. There is more: a wizard in the form of a roll of toilet paper, an all-consuming incinerator monster, a pig witch. But as crazy as this sounds, it all comes together into a heartfelt and wildly entertaining animated tale about the possibility for human connection in the crazy, mixed-up, semi-random, post-modern world we live in.
