KIM Ki-duk's "Dream" to compete in San Sebastian

2008/06/26 | 333 views | Permalink | Source

"Dream" (Korean title: "Bimong"), the fifteenth film by director Kim Ki-duk, has been selected to compete at the 56th San Sebastian International Film Festival, to be held from September 18-27.

The film, which stars Japanese heartthrob Joe Odagiri and Korean actress Lee Na-young, centers around a man who experiences a startlingly realistic dream about a car accident, and later discovers that the accident occurred in real life.

KIM's previous films have premiered at Cannes, Venice, Berlin, Locarno, Karlovy Vary and Moscow, but this will be the first time for him to compete at the prestigious Spanish festival. Other Korean films that have competed at San Sebastian in recent years include Bong Joon-ho's "Memories of Murder" (2003), Song Il-gon's "Spider Forest" (2004), Heo Jin-ho's "April Snow" (2005), Im Sang-soo's "The Old Garden", and Kim Mi-jung's "Shadows in the Palace" (2007).

In 2003, KIM's Spring, "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... And Spring" screened out of competition in San Sebastian and won the Audience Award.
