As an omnibus work, 1.3.6 has to be considered a failure, especially as the three films (Jang's amusing Sonagi Epilogue, Lee's poorly-received Mobius Strip, and Song's poetic Git) don't match, not just in length but in form, content, mood, style, and quality.
But if Song betrayed the spirit of the omnibus project, he remained true to the needs of his film.
Now, years after breaking up, he returns to the small island named Biyang-do, wondering if his ex-girlfriend will remember their appointment.
Without the pressure and weighty expectations involved in producing a major work, inspiration flows freely and the result is an even more accomplished piece of art.
When it plays it ALWAYS brings joy to my heart and soul ... I will also send a CD by post and note the great dancing in Rosh Hashanah Rock Anthem! I am excited but it took a lot of nudging even for me to go forth.
All the other mis-information being broadcast there needs to be some truth and hope for all!
Comprising works by Jang Jin (Someone Special), Lee Young-jae (Harmonium in My Memory) and Song, 1.3.6 was intended to explore environmental themes and was slotted to open the first Green Film Festival in Seoul in late October.
Alas, the festival's expectations were confounded, first in that only Lee Young-jae's work really engaged environmental issues in a direct way (the other two were merely set in rural areas), and second by the fact that Song went out and shot a 70-minute film.
SO HARD TO FATHOM, I AM HERE IN THE UNITED STATES, 62 YEARS OLD AND EXPERIENCING SUCH BEAUTIFUL JOY IN THE LORD. Most of all the words wow, so real, so true and so much depth...it!!
