Yoon Danbi’s Debut Continues to Score International Acclaim
The film focuses on a girl and her younger brother, who move with their father to their grandfather’s house following their parents’ divorce. Over the course of a summer, the siblings deal with the breakup of their immediate family as well as changes with other members of their family and within themselves.
Moving On debuted in the Korean Cinema Today-Vision section of the Busan International Film Festival in 2019, where it earned four prizes - the KTH Award, NETPAC Award, DGK Award and Citizen Critics Award. It went on to win the Bright Future Award at the International Film Festival Rotterdam early next year, before winning the Uncaged Award for Best Feature Film at the New York Asian Film Festival and the Special Jury Award from the Mar del Plata International Film Festival.
Yoon has also received several major prizes from local film awards bodies, including Best New Director from the Korean Association of Film Critics Awards and the Busan Film Critics Association Awards.
