Busan and Jeonju Titles Presented at Market in Berlin
Indie film distributor Mirovision is presenting a collection of festival hits at this year’s European Film Market in Berlin. The newest title in their lineup is the horror-thriller Collision, from directors LEE Yun-ho and Heo Seo-hyoung, which is having a market screening at EFM.
Road to Utah, the KIM Jeong-jung film which debuted at the Busan International Film Festival, stars LEE Jin-wook and RYU Hye-young as a depressed pair meandering through the American West. Also from Busan is the debut feature Second Winter by KIM Euigon about a young but poor couple who want to move to a better apartment. KO Bong-soo’s DELTA BOYS debuted at the Jeonju International Film Festival last year, where it picked up the Grand Prize in the Korean Competition.
JEONG Ka-young stars in and directs Bitch On the Beach, which premiered at the Seoul Independent Film Festival in December. LEE Hyun-jung’s third feature Night Song was one of the Jeonju Cinema Projects in 2015. Also in their lineup is LEE Sang-woo’s Bittersweet Brew, which was previously represented by 9ers Entertainment.
Mirovision also has a number of upcoming titles in their lineup. Debut director JI Sung-won’s The Executioner’s Daughter features KIM In-kwon in a tale of a small village which is beset by strange events which seem to be linked to a young girl. 26 Years (2012) director CHO Geun-hyun is returning with Heyday, which stars singer KIM Wan-sun as a has-been singer whose meandering daily life begins to drift between reality and dreams when she meets a character from one of her songs. Animators AHN Jae-hoon and HAN Hye-jin return with a pair of works based on Korean classics, The Shaman Sorceress and Shower.
Collision, Road to Utah and DELTA BOYS all have market screenings at EFM.
