Korean Film Highlighted at Philadelphia Festival

2004/03/24 Source

Philadelphia's film goers will have a feast of Korean cinema to choose from when the 13th Philadelphia Film Festival opens on April 8.
South Korea is well represented with 11 features out of the 133 to be screened, including a special category called New Korean Cinema. The category's six films include kwak Jae-Yong's "The Classic" and Bong Joon-ho's "Memories of Murder".

Last year's run of local horror movies saw four South Korean films make it into the festival's Danger After Dark category, including "A Tale of Two Sisters", by Kim Jee-woon and "The Uninvited" by Lee Soo-yeon.

Rounding out the Korean lineup, "Please Teach Me English" by Kim Seong-su will screen in the International Comedy section.

Im Sang-soo's "A Good Lawyer's Wife" and Park Ki-hyeong's "Acacia" were also picked by the organizer among the festival's "lucky 13" of not-to-be-missed movies.
