Stand by Me


Short 3

Ji-young Che | 2005 | Fiction | 35mm | Color | 15min [English Subtitle]


The TV news announces that MR. RONALD REAGAN has died from Alzheimer's disease. The mother, who has never fully recovered from the effects of a cerebral hemorrhage, cries because she thinks that she will die like him. While the daughter is trying to call and check in on her mother, the mother doesn't answer, making the daughter very nervous. The daughter rushes back home…


This film is a story based upon the communication between my mother and myself after my mother became handicapped by the effects of a cerebral hemorrhage. (My mother also plays herself in this film.) If it were not for illness and difficulties in life, we could not be reminded of how precious the time is that we have. Happiness is not always perfection, but sometimes happiness is also the journey to understanding. This film expresses my own journey with my mother.
