‘Pieta’ to represent Korea at Venice Film Festival
Director Kim Ki-duk attended a press conference for his movie on Aug. 29, the day that the Italian film fest kicked off, and answered questions in regards to the Korean film that broke the seven-year dry spell at the renowned event.
This year marks Kim’s fourth representation at the world’s oldest film festival.
There are two other representing Korea this year: “The Weight” and “Invitation,” but they are presented in the non-competing segments.
The ceremony will draw to an end on Sep. 8 and the winner will be awarded with the Golden Lion Prize.
The film opens in Korea on Sep. 6.
