'Treeless Mountain' Opens Turkish Fest

2009/06/12 Source

Kim So-yong's prize-winning auto-biographical second feature "Treeless Mountain" opened the 16th Adana Golden Boll Film Festival running June 8 14. Director KIM and the film's two leading child actors Kim Hee-yeon-I and Kim Seong-hee attended the red carpet opening ceremony.

Jury president and Cannes award-winning Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan introduced the film, saying he found Korean cinema interesting and followed it closely. Treeless Mountain tells the story of two unwanted young sisters shuffled off by their mother onto their alcoholic aunt and then on to their grandparents.

The film has played at numerous film festivals around the world. Director KIM is Korean-American and debuted with the feature "In Between Days". "Treeless Mountain" is her first film made in Korea. It won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury in Berlin, Best Film in Dubai, the Netpac Award in Pusan and the Filmex Special Jury Prize in Tokyo.
