  • 01.03.2012
    The International Film Festival Rotterdam’s co-production market CineMart has selected Korean director JANG Cheol-soo’s project <Service for People> for its upcoming 29th edition. CineMart ultimately chose a total of 36 projects from 465 entries. The finalists will be presented to 850 potential co-financiers from Jan. 29 – Feb 1.
    Jang made his feature debut with the much-lauded thriller <Bedevilled> in 2010 at the Cannes Film Festival’s Critics’ Week.
    Set in North Korea, Jang’s CineMart project is an adaptation of YAN Lianke's controversial Chinese novel about the young wife of an impotent army general that seduces the soldier assigned to do domestic chores at their house. Bidangil Pictures (<The Chaser>) is producing, with sales company Finecut attached as a co-producer.
