Two Korean films make it to Cannes


Directors, Hong Sang-soo and Im Sang-soo

Two directors, Hong Sang-soo and Im Sang-soo, will see their movies screened at the Cannes Film Festival, organizers announced on Thursday.

Hong’s “In Another Country” and Im’s “Taste of Money” have made it onto the list of 22 films to be played in the southern French city out of a total of 1,700 submissions.

For Hong, this is his eighth film to be accepted into the festival, while it is Im’s second successful submission.

“In Another Country” features French actress Isabelle Huppert and consists of three short films. The collection garnered much attention because of Huppert’s participation.

“Taste of Money” centers on those living in Korean high society and explores themes like greed, sex and ambition. Actors Kim Kang-woo, Kim Hyo-jin and Yoon Yeo-jung star.

The 65th annual Cannes Film Festival will take place from May 16 to 27 this year.
