Korea is first and second in Berlinale short film section. The Park brothers’ iPhone-filmed Night Fishing wins, with Yang Hyo-joo winning the Silver Bear for The Unbroken, which is a short film about two swindlers who are involved in a real accident one evening after contriving a fake car accident to claim insurance payments. http://bit.ly/guyH9Z #
