Any New York City film buff is familiar with Kim’s Video. Especially in the days before Netflix and GreenCine, Kim’s was the place to go for your obscure cinema needs.
The video chain’s founder, Korean-born Yongman Kim, dropped out of an NYU Film School class that included Jim Jarmusch and Lees Ang and Spike. He has now at last gotten around to making his own film debut as director of 1/3, a psychological thriller set in the East Village and involving both a Buddhist monk and the snorting of cocaine from off someone’s ass.
The film opens in New York City on Friday, October 6, at City
Cinemas Village East.
