2010/11/03 Source

The fantasy musical film "Passerby #3" by Korean director Shin Su-won won the Best Asian-Middle Eastern Film Award at the 23rd Tokyo International Film Festival which ended on Sunday. It competed in the "Winds of Asia-Middle East: Film Panorama of Asia-Middle East" section.

The movie tells the story of a 39-year-old working mother who struggles to realize her dream of becoming a film director.

Other Korean films to have won the honor include "Timeless Bottomless Bad Movie" (1997) by Jang Sun-woo, "Memories of Murder" (2003) by Bong Joon-ho and "A Brand New Life" (2009) by Ounie Lecomte.

"Passerby #3" was made with a budget of just W47 million (US$1=W1,114), much of it raised by director Shin Su-won who also served as investor, script writer and producer. The film also won the JJ-Star Award at the 11th Jeonju International Film Festival this spring. It will be released in Korea on Nov. 18.
