According to Kim Ji-seok, a programmer of the Pusan International Film Festival, on Jan. 30, film director Lim Tae-hyeong, who directed the film "Little Brother" (2005), won the best director award in the "Spiritual Cinema" division of the 24th Fajr International Film Festival which ended in Teheran, Iran on Jan. 30.

"Little Brother" portrays a touching story about a nine-year-old boy "Janghani" (played by Park Ji-bin) who tries to save his older brother who is suffering from cancer. Park won the "Silver Iris for Best Actor Award" at the first New Montreal Filmfest held in Canada in September of last year for his acting in this film.

Meanwhile, other South Korean films failed to win awards at the Iranian film festival. They are "A Family" (2004, directed by Lee Jeong-cheol), which was invited to the "International Competition Division"; "Taegukgi: Brotherhood of War" (2003, directed by Kang Jae-gyu), "Cracked Eggs and Noodles" (2005, directed by Oh Sang-hoon), "Daddy-Long-Legs" (2005, directed by Kong Jeong-sik), and "Long and Winding Road" (2005, directed by Koo Sung-joo), all invited to the "Competition Division for Asian Films".
