Korean Indies from Top Fest Screen in Germany
A selection of Korean independent film from the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF) will screen in Germany next month at the 3rd Korean Cinema Today film festival which will run from April 24th to May 4th. 10 feature films from BIFF will screen at Berlin’s Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
Opening the event will be LEE Su-jin’s redhot feature debut Han Gong-ju, which earned the CGV MovieCollage Award and Citizen’s Reviewers Prize in Busan before earning top honors at the Marrakesh and Rotterdam International Film Festivals and a trio of awards from the recent Deauville Asian Film Festival. Also screening will be YEON Sangho’s successful sophomore animation The Fake, which premiered in the Vanguard section of the Toronto International Film Festival last year. Other films include KIM Jae-han’s Thuy, JUNG Yoon-suk’s Non-Fiction Diary and a remastered version of LEE Man-hee’s classic Black Hair (1964).
Attending the event in Germany will be directors LEE Su-jin, KIM Jae-han and JUNG Yoon-suk, as well as BIFF programmers HONG Hyo-sook and CHO Young-jung, for a panel on ‘New Currents in Korean Cinema – Politics, Gender and Filmmaking.’
