2008/10/21 | Permalink | Source

A retrospective on Korean actor Choi Min-sik has been announced as one of the special programs scheduled for the 14th Lyon Asian Film Festival on Nov. 4 in France.

According to Pusan International Film Festival programmer Kim Ji-seok, the actor's five most notable films "Chihwaseon", "Failan", "Crying Fist", "Old Boy" and "Our Twisted Hero", have been selected to be discussed and analyzed in an open forum.

Choi is slated to make an appearance at the festival and participate in interviews with French media to talk about his life and career, which has spanned over two decades. The 14th Lyon Asian Film Festival closes its curtains on Nov. 9.

In Mumbai, India, director Park Kwang-soo received the Asian Film Culture award at the Third Eye Asian Film Festival on Oct. 16.

The Asian Film Culture award is given to filmmakers who have made significant contributions to the development of films in the Asian region. Park's most notable film, "A Single Spark", will have a special screening in conjunction with his award reception.

Also included in the festival program is a retrospective on the films of maverick indie director and international film festival circuit mainstay, Kim Ki-duk.
