  • Crying Fist and Grain In Ear win sidebar awards at Cannes
  • May 25, 2005
  • RYOO Seung-wan's Crying Fist, the story of two unrelated men who try to resurrect their lives through boxing, was chosen to receive the FIPRESCI Award at the 2005 Cannes International Film Festival. FIPRESCI (the International Federation of Film Critics) presents three awards at Cannes: one to a film in the main competition, one to a film in Un Certain Regard, and a third to a film in either the Critics Week or Directors' Fortnight section. Crying Fist screened in the Directors' Fortnight section, thus it was chosen out of a total 28 features. The two other FIPRESCI Awards presented were to Michael Haneke's Hidden and Mexican director Amat Escalante's Sangre. Meanwhile, Chinese-Korean co-production Grain In Ear by director ZHANG Lu screened to positive reviews in the Critics Week, and was presented with an award from the France Independent Film Distributors' Association (ACID). The film tells the story of a Chinese woman of Korean descent who lives in a rural community, selling kimchi for a living
