So Yong Kim in person!

Winner at the Sundance and Berlin film festivals, SAIC alum So Yong Kim’s luminous debut feature is the delicately observed story of Aimie, a Korean teenager newly immigrated to Canada. Aimie lives with her single mother in a bleak Toronto housing block, killing time smoking, window-shopping, and playing video games with her best, and only friend, Tran. As her feelings for Tran deepen, however, he turns his attentions to another, more westernized, girl. Set against the stunning, snow-covered landscape of a Canadian winter, In Between Days captures the daily trials of assimilation and the longing and sexual insecurity of youth. Kim “is a gifted artist…with a rare appreciation for the poetic possibilities of digital video” (Scott Foundas, LA Weekly). In English and Korean. 2006, So Yong Kim, USA, 83 min, video.
