Korean movie Futureless Things (이것이 우리의 끝이다) in Oakland, July 14 and 16.

The 2014 Korean movie Futureless Things (이것이 우리의 끝이다) will in Oakland on July 14 and 16 as part of the 2015 Silk Screen Asian American Film Festival.

A synopsis:
The trials and tribulations of a group of convenience store clerks over the course of a single day are emblematic of societal archetypes. These unforgettable characters toil away as they deal with love, drama, mystery, romance, unruly customers and even a little magic. The motley crew includes: a struggling actor, an English student, and a young girl trying to get over a romantic relationship with one of her coworkers. Set against a very specific cultural moment, one wonders: how much does an individual struggle with love, drama, or mystery actually matter when pitted against almighty commerce?
The July 14 screening is at 7:00 pm at the Melwood Screening Room (map). The 2015 festival runs from July 10 through July 18 at the Melwood Screening Room and the Regent Square Theater. Ticket information and the complete festival schedule are available at the festival's website.
