Kim Ki-duk Invited to Venice for 4th Time with 'Pieta'

Director Kim Ki-duk's latest film "Pieta" has been included in the official competition category at the 69th Venice Film Festival, which will open on Aug. 29.

This is the first time in seven years a Korean movie has entered the competition section of the festival since Park Chan-wook's "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" in 2005.

It also marks Kim's fourth time to participate in the acclaimed festival. He entered the competition section with "The Isle" in 2000, and four years later won four different awards for "3-Iron", including Best Director and Little Golden Lion.

Also included in the competition section of this year's festival were "To The Wonder" by Terrence Malick, who won the Palme d'Or at Cannes last year for "The Tree of Life", and Frenchman Olivier Assayas' "Something in the Air", "Outrage: Beyond" by Japan's Takeshi Kitano, and "Passion" by Brian De Palma.
