Korean Weepie Screened at Berlin Film Fest

2015/02/10 | Permalink | Source

Kim Yunjin (third from right), the star of "Ode to My Father", and director JK Youn meet former Korean nurses dispatched to Germany in the 1960s, after a screening at the Berlin International Film Festival on Sunday.

"Ode to My Father" was screened on Sunday at the Berlin International Film Festival, which wraps up this weekend.

The weepie, which has broken all records in Korea, portrays a man's sacrifices for his family throughout the vortex of Korea's modern history.

The 273 seats of the Zoo Palast, the screening venue, were fully occupied. Of the around 60 ethnic Korean spectators, 20 were first-generation immigrants whose experiences are portrayed in the movie.

Director JK Youn and actress Kim Yunjin met the older expats after the screening.

The tearjerker is also scheduled for a special screening near Washington on Wednesday.
