BANANA TRIP

PRESENTED BY | KQED & FILM SCHOOL SHORTS

ABOUT THE FILM

Visiting from South Korea, Seungmin and Dongjoo are counting on their Korean-American friend John to hook them up with girls — babes in bikinis on the Florida beach, to be exact. It doesn’t take long for the trio to realize that picking up chicks isn’t as easy as John’s braggadocio would suggest. With their day at the beach ending and prospects diminishing, the friends reevaluate their mission.

Hyungijk LeeABOUT THE FILMMAKER

A Texan by way of Asia, Hyungjik Lee was born in Dallas and moved to South Korea when he was six, thus beginning a lifetime of commuting between two countries. His interests have also covered a lot of ground, including animation, writing a fantasy novel and painting. He’s currently pursuing filmmaking at Florida State University and wants to shoot music videos while continuing to travel as much as he can.


ABOUT FILM SCHOOL SHORTS

Film School Shorts is a national half-hour weekly series that showcases short student films from across the country. Grouped together around a central theme or topic, and featuring production values that rival their indie film counterparts, KQED is proud to present award winning entertainment to a national audience. Film School Shorts is made possible by a grant from Maurice Kanbar, celebrating the vitality and power of the moving image, and by the members of KQED.
