'Empress Chung', which was nominated in the "Feature Film Competition' of the Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF), scheduled to be held on September 21-25.
Korean animation 'Empress Chung', which is going to be screened at the same time in South and North Korea, was nominated in the "Feature Film Competition' of the Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF), scheduled to be held on September 21-25.

'Empress Chung' directed by Nelson Shin, is an animation in which a production cost of 7 billion won was thrown over seven years. This animation, which has great significance in that South and North Korea took part in its joint production, is garnering big expectation with the animation's simultaneous release in South & North Korea as well as its inroads into international film festivals.

This animation, which will be released on August 12 in South Korea and on August 15 in North Korea, has been invited from a host of international film festivals such as the Brussel Animation Film Festival (Belgium), the Trebon International Animation Film Festival (Czech) and so forth.

Founded in 1975 by the Canadian Film Institute, and pulled together over a short nine months, the Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF) was born.

First held August 10 to 15, 1976, the OIAF created a gathering place for North American animation professionals and enthusiasts to ponder the craft and business of animation. It also provided their international colleagues with a unique opportunity to gain an appreciation for and access to the North American scene.

"Empress Chung", a cartoon based on the traditional Korean tale of a young princess who sacrifices herself to save her father's eyesight, will hit about 60 screens in South Korea and six in the North on Aug. 15, Korea's Liberation Day -- which celebrates Korea gaining independence from Japan in 1945.

This animation has a soundtrack by North Korean composer Sung Dong-hwan, and North Korean actors are redubbing the dialogue for its local run in order to reflect the North's different dialect.
