This April the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. will kick off the annual Korean Film Festival DC, running April 4 May 16. Opening the event is rising auteur Lee Yoon-ki's fourth feature "My Dear Enemy", starring Cannes-winning actress Jeon Do-yeon. The event also features a spotlight on independent director Jeon Soo-il who will attend the several screenings in person.

Among JEON's films showcased at the fest are his first feature "Wind Echoing In My Being" (1997), his masterpiece "Time Between Dog And Wolf - Movie" (2007), Venice CICAE award-winner "With a Girl of Black Soil" (2007), and the Nepal-set drama "Himalaya, Where the Wind Dwells" (2008) starring Choi Min-sik.

Other films in the fest include Lee Myung-se's mysterious "M", Sin Dong-il's elegantly awkward drama "My Friend and His Wife", Jang Hoon's hit debut "Rough Cut", Hwang Kyoo-deok's "For Eternal Hearts", Kim Ji-hoon's "May 18", and badboy Kim Ki-duk's latest "Dream".

A panel discussion titled "Gwangju Uprising: 30 Years Later" will also be held, in which film scholar David E. James and historian Nam-hee Lee discuss the impact of the tragic events of May 18, 1980, on Korean history.
