6 Film Retrospective to Be Staged
Korea’s indie maverick KIM Ki-duk is set to be honored at the Cartagena Film Festival (FICC), the oldest festival in South America, during its upcoming 55th edition. The festival will take place in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, from March 11th to 17th.
Following a screening of 3-Iron (2004), a Silver Lion winner at the Venice International Film Festival, on the 15th, KIM will be awarded the India Catalina honorary award and take part in a Q&A with the audience.
Six of the auteur’s 20 works to date will be presented throughout the festival, including The Isle (2000), Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring (2003), 2004’s Samaritan Girl (a Silver Bear winner at the Berlin International Film Festival), The Bow (2005) and Venice Golden Lion winner Pieta (2012), in addition to 3-Iron.
KIM’s most recent film, the revenge thriller One on One, debuted internationally as the opening film of the Venice Film Festival sidebar Venice Days last year, where it picked up the Fedeora Award. Also being bestowed with an honor this year at the Colombian festival will be Argentine filmmaker Pablo Trapero, the director behind 2010’s Carancho.
