A mother and her high school-age daughter go on a trip to Otaru, a snowswept village nestled in the northern Hokkaido province of Japan, in Moonlit Winter, the sophomore work by director LIM Dae-hyung. When the daughter accidentally reads a letter intended for her mother, which uncovers a secret from the past, the two are forced to embark on a journey of reconciliation. At the same time, another woman, who has recently lost her father and lives with her aunt, appears before them, revitalizing their lives.
Moonlit Winter, which was a recipient of the ACF Production Support Fund in 2018, will have its world premiere as the closing film of this year’s Busan International Film Festival. Director LIM debuted as a feature filmmaker with the acclaimed Charlie CHAPLIN-inspired black and white comedy-drama Merry Christmas Mr. Mo, which screened in the New Currents competition at Busan in 2016, where it picked up the NETPAC Award. The film stars veteran actress KIM Hee-ae of The Vanished (2018) and Herstory (2018), KIM So-hye, a member of K-pop group I.O.I and TV drama star making her feature film debut, and Japanese actress NAKAMURA Yuko, who recently appeared in director TSUKAMOTO Shinya’s Fires on the Plain remake, a gala presentation at last year’s Busan International Film Festival.
