KIM So-yong's "Treeless Mountain" premieres at Toronto

2008/08/08 | Permalink | Source

Korean-American director Kim So-yong's "Treeless Mountain" has been selected by Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), where it will make its world premiere. Her feature debut film, "In Between Days", was selected for the screenings at Berlin, Toronto, Sundance and Pusan International Film Festival(PIFF) and was supported by Korean Film Council (KOFIC) for Korean Filmmakers participating in international film festivals and independent film awards.

"Treeless Mountain" is about a summer of two sisters who have no choice but to spend it with their alcoholic aunt. The story is semi-autobiographical.

"In Between Days" portrays a young Korean girl in the U.S. as she struggles with life in a foreign country and her feelings for a Korean-American friend.

At last year's TIFF, Lee Myung-se's "M" was selected and was praised for his technical and visual achievements.

This year's edition of TIFF will run from September 4th to 13th.
