Check This... Park Chan Wook's iPhone Short Film 'Night Fishing'

'Night Fishing' is the experimental South Korean fantasy-horror short film directed, produced, written Park Chan-wook and his brother Park Chan-kyong under the name PARKing CHANce. The short was shot entirely on the Apple iPhone 4 and went on to win the Golden Bear for Best Short Film at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival.

A man casually sets up for a fishing trip at the water's edge. Evening comes and a tug on his line presents him with the body of a woman. While he tries to disentangle himself from the fishing lines, she comes alive. The scene changes and the woman is now a shaman priestess in a funeral ritual for a man who drowned in a river. He speaks through her to his relatives, asking for forgiveness.
