Something Remained (開花1953)

'What comes after death?'

The film presents various views on death by ordinary people and one family dealing with the death of their loved one.

Director's Statement:

The reason why I named the English title 'Something Remained' is that I think there is still something remained in reality after a person's death. Even if it feels like there's nothing left materially, Such non-material legacies─the conversation, the mood...─ will be remain in our life forever.

For the original title '開花1953', 開花(Gae-hwa) means 'Blooming flowers' Meanwhile, 開化(Gae-hwa), which is homonym for 開花 in Korean means adopting innovative thinking and understanding new cultures.

I hope you to realize the view of death that you never imagined before through this film.
