"The Last Eve" Wins Award at New York Independent Film Festival

2005/10/14 | 130 views | Permalink | Source

An epic film entitled "The Last Eve" directed by Kang Yeong-man, who is based in New York, has won the "Action Film Award" at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival, which just recently closed.

The festival, which was launched in 1993, has been taken in a road show format to four different cities in the United States, including New York and Los Angeles, screening about 300 films each year.

"The Last Eve" is an epic film consisting of three different short films using Adam and Eve from the Bible as motifs.

Kang made headlines in 2000 when he was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as "the film director who had distributed a film made with the smallest budget to American movie theaters" by producing the epic film "Cupid's Mistake" (1999) with a mere 980 dollars, or about 1 million won.
