6:30 p.m. – Korean Studies Auditorium

A meditation on absence and longing, 4:30 is about a moment, and a boy’s attempt to cling to it, escaping his drab reality. 4:30 traces the relationship between Zhang Xiao Wu and his tenant Jung, a thirty-something Korean man. Told entirely from the perspective of the boy, this story of two very different characters is less about friendship than about a shared experience and appreciation of solitude. 4:30 screened at the Berlin Film Festival and the Deauville Film Festival and won the Asian film critic’s NETPAC Award at the 2006 Hawaii International Film Festival.
