I got this email from my friend So Yong Kim, who happens to also be an uber talented film director:
"We are very excited to announce that our latest film TREELESS
MOUNTAIN will open on April 22, at Film Forum in NYC and in other
cities in the coming weeks.
We hope you can come out to see it. The first weekend box office is
crucial to the survival of a small independent film.
We'll be at the Q&A on April 22 & 24, at 8pm screenings".
I had the opportunity to see Treeless Mountain at a screening at the Walter Reade Theatre a few weeks ago and it burned a hole in my cranium with its lacerating beauty. This clear eyed, carefully seen movie confronts the painful but far from hopeless predicament of two young girls facing abandonment. You can read countless reviews online, including a recent New York Times magazine article. Don't miss it!
