Breathless wins gold in Barcelona

2009/05/19 Source

Critically acclaimed Korean independent feature film "Breathless" triumphed again in Europe. This time, Yang Ik-june's drama received the Golden durian award at the 11th Barcelona Asian Film Festival (BAFF).

On the closing day of the festival 10 May 2009 BAFF praises "Yang Ik-june's brilliant debut", his versatility, and his captivating portrayal of domestic violence. The prize includes six thousand Euro for YANG's future project.

Noh Young-seok's "Daytime Drinking" received a special mention from the D-Cinema section jury. "(...) for his unquestionable talent creating a simply hilarious film".

While "Breathless" is a study of domestic violence in Korea, "Daytime Drinking" takes on Korea's drinking culture in a humorous way. Both films are exemplary of Korea's current influx of fresh blood into the film scene, and new heights of Korea's independent cinema domestically as well as internationally.
