“Remember O Goddess”

Tweetable Logline: 

A Korean independent film noir about a man who has lost his memory will take you on a dream-like journey through memory, time and love.
Elevator Pitch:
Our hero was abandoned in the tallest apartment in Seoul, one of the largest cities in the world, finding himself unable to remember his identity and basic life skills. When he overcomes his fear of the outer world and finally pucks up to courage to go out, he discovers greater hope to find someone who remembers him than to restore his own memory. The film follows his quest to reconnect with a lost love.
Production Team:
Director: Yoon Jung Lee
Producer: Jung Youn
Cinematographer: U Young Chang
Editor: Sae Kyoung Moon (“Mother”)
About the Production:
“I wrote the original story 16 years ago and had forgotten it. Two years ago, I found the notebook where my story had been dormant and became fascinated that the theme of the story was something that I am still interested in today: We often feel disconnected, even surrounded by a huge crowd in a large city, but it never changes that you are a friend, a son or a daughter of somebody. This is the first attempt of crowdfunding worldwide for a Korean independent film because I believe independent films are not limited to to national borders.” — Yoon Jung Lee
Current Status:
In pre-production after shooting and editing together preliminary footage.
