Alex SHIN’s Sci-fi Short Tours International Circuit
Actress OH Ha-nee has picked up the Best Actress prize at the recent 21st edition of the FirstGlance Film Festival Philadelphia for her role in the short film Eve. The film was nominated in for Best Actress, Best Director, Best Editing, Best Sound Design and Best Special Effects at the festival, triumphing in the former category for OH as the titular android antagonist of Alex SHIN’s short.
Eve follows an inventor who lives with his android, called Eve. One day a gun-wielding man from the future visits them, claiming that Eve will achieve artificial intelligence and set in motion the downfall of human civilization. The inventor must now choose whether to believe the stranger and if he can give up the pride and love of his life.
OH is a rising star in the Korean film industry who first appeared in small roles in three 2015 works: the youth comedy Twenty, period erotic drama Empire of Lust and the Cannes-invited romantic thriller The Shameless. More recently she had more significant supporting parts in the action-drama A Special Lady (2017) and this year's abuse drama Marionette.
