MY LOVE, DON’T CROSS THAT RIVER to open in NY & LA in June; national release to follow

My Love, Don't Cross That River
Written and Directed by Moyoung Jin
South Korea, 2014, 86 minutes

WINNER! BEST DOCUMENTARY- LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL
OFFICIAL SELECTION: HOT DOCS, NEW YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL

“100-year old Lovebirds” Byong-man Jo and Gye-yeul Kang, have been inseparable companions for the past 76 years. Living in their small home by the river, they wear traditional Korean clothes, go shopping at the local market, have picnics with neighbors, and enjoy dance parties. Every night they go to sleep holding each other’s hands. Observing this fragile couple for 15 months, director Mo-Young Jin acts as a fly-on-the-wall, capturing their twilight days with tender moments that reveal simple acts of affection – from a good-natured leaf fight to a gentle caress of the cheek.

A blockbuster in its native Korea, where it would go on to become the country’s biggest independent film of all time, My Love, Don't Cross That River presents an unforgettable story of true love that transcends both generations and cultures.

OPENING THEATRICALLY:

New York on Friday, June 17 and Los Angeles on Friday, June 24 with a national release to follow
