Seoul-Stockholm Korean Film Festival

2008/09/11 Source

Following the success of its previous edition, the Seoul-Stockholm Korean Film Festival will showcase recent artistic and commercial hits from South Korea. Running September 17 21 at the Zita theater in Stockholm, the event will screen 8 Korean features, up from 5 shown in 2007.4 Korean directors will attend the event as special guests.

This year's selection includes two features presented at the Berlin Film Festival: Hong Sang-soo's "Night and Day" which screened in the 2008 competition section, and Lee Yoon-ki's "Ad-Lib Night", shown in the 2007 Young Forum section. Also in the program are fest favorites, Jeon Soo-il's "With a Girl of Black Soil" which screened at Venice 2007, and Thessaloniki Int'l Film Festival's top-prize winner "Family Ties" ("The Birth of a Family") by Kim Tae-yong.

Another indie gem making the festival rounds, "Milky Way Liberation Front" by Yoon Seong-ho, will screen with the director invited to Stockholm for a guest Q & A session. Two popular features, the 2008 sports-redemption hit "Forever the Moment" by Yim Soon-rye and the elegantly crafted 2007 horror "Epitaph" by the JEONG brothers (Jeong Beom-sik, Jeong Sik) will also screen with both LIM and the JEONG brothers attending as special guests. The most recent film in the program is the Spring-released military horror "The Guard Post" by Kong Soo-chang.
