A Korean film has been selected to screen in competition at the Sundance Film Festival next month in Park City, Utah. Director Lim Woo-seong's psychological drama "Vegetarian" was selected from among 1,022 submissions to be one of 14 to compete in the World Cinema Narrative Competition section at the prestigious North American fest.

LIM's feature debut is based on a famous short story by Korean writer Han-gang, and revolves around a sensitive housewife who becomes vegetarian as her relationship with her husband deteriorates, culminating in a liaison with her sister's husband, an artist who paints bodies.

The film drew critical attention at its world premiere at the Pusan International Film Festival last October. Director LIM is currently completing his second feature, titled "Scar". Sundance is to take place January 21- 31, with new festival director John Cooper replacing longtime head, Geoffrey Gilmore.
