In 2008, American independent filmmaker Jon Jost traveled to South Korea, where he became a professor of graduate studies in the film department at Yonsei University in Seoul. In collaboration with two of his students, Moon Si-Hyun and Lee Sang-Woo, Jost helped create this three-part comedy-drama about the many guises of love. In Karma, Lee Sang-Woo directs himself in the leading role as a man who can't find his soul mate until he discovered a discarded mannequin and falls in love with the dummy. Moon Si-Hyun's segment, The Silence, concerns itself with a man who speaks at length about his spouse, but she only laughs or speaks in his memories -- in the present, she never utters a word. And Mr. Right, Jost's contribution, is a blunt portrait of a man who wants to get out of a failing relationship at any cost. Love In The Shadows was an official selection at the 2009 Rotterdam International Film Festival; Jost's film has also been screened separately as a short subject.
