'King of Pigs' Animation Invited to Cannes

2012/04/25 | 162 views | Permalink | Source

Yeon Sang-ho's animated feature film "King of Pigs" has been invited to Cannes next month to feature at a special screening of the festival's Directors' Fortnight.

Other Korean films previously presented in the section include "Peppermint Candy" (1999) by Lee Chang-dong, "The President's Last Bang" (2005) by Im Sang-soo and "The Host" (2006) by Bong Joon-ho.

This is the first time that a Korean feature animation has ever been included in the lineup. This automatically puts Yeun on the list of candidates for the Golden Camera Award, which is given to the best debut feature film presented at one of the Cannes' selections.

The film tells the story of a man who kills his wife after he fails in business. He then looks back on his past by visiting his friend from middle school. The thriller drew over 20,000 viewers in Korea when it was released in December.
