I'm happy to say that The Golden Pin is playing this week in a special screening along with the Korean 50-minute drama 'A Silk Letter' in Toronto. The films screen together every day at 1:45 pm and 6:40 pm at the Carlton Cinema in Toronto at 20 Carlton Street just east of Yonge until Thursday Feb 7th, 2013.
A Silk Letter profiles the character of "Sungwoon (Sung Hojun) who lives in Seoul in a small apartment that he shares with his teenaged, high-school dropout lover (Choi Jinhwan) and their cat, Louie. They may be living in Korea’s largest city, but huddled together on a mattress on the floor, they’re on their own private island. And as the movie opens, escape is very much on Sungwoon’s mind. He’s introduced in the middle of burning his draft card, in a brilliantly composed long shot that isolates him within an urban landscape." You can read the rest of Adam Nayman's glowing review in the Globe & Mail here.
For those in the Toronto area looking for some artsy, award-winning, Asian-themed queer shorts to check out, please check the screening out this week at the Carlton!
