Set in Busan, South Korea, Hello Goodbye is the story of an unlikely romance that begins between two people who meet far away from home. One is a sailor, the other works for the Indonesian consulate. More than just a romance, the film deeply explores the two protagonists and their divergent life views. The film is rich with conflict, life lessons, and love, and features award-winning cinematography and a soundtrack by Korean singer Eru. In Korean and Indonesian languages with English subtitles.

Inspired by the Themester theme of “Connectedness: Networks in a Complex World,” this semester’s East Asian Film Series offers three film co-productions between filmmakers and film industries in East Asia and the larger Asia Pacific. Representing an increasingly ubiquitous mode of production in the region, the co-productions of this series offer glimpses into contemporary concerns with encounter, exchange, survival, and everyday life that resonate among South Korea and Indonesia; Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Mainland China; as well as Japan and the world.
