테스트

French director Maud Alpi’s short film “Ground Work” (2007) won the Grand Prize and Iceland director Grimur Hakonarson’s “Wrestling” (pictured above) won the Special Jury Award at the 6th Asiana International Short Film Festival.

The six-day event closed on Monday at the Cinecube theater in Gwanghwamun, central Seoul. Alpi’s films tells how a farmer copes with the loss of his daughter and Hakonarson’s 95-minute movie is about two Icelandic homosexual wrestlers who fall in love and have to keep the relationship a secret.

Seventy films from 32 countries were screened at the festival and 63 percent of the seats were sold, a 5 percent increase compared to last year.
