Director Kim Ki-duk wins Silver Lion at Venice

 

September 21, 2004


South Korean director Kim Ki-duk, 43, received the Silver Lion for best director for his film "3-Iron" at the Venice Film Festival on September 11. "3-Iron" is a unique love story in which the man sleeps in other people's houses when the owner is absent.

This is Mr. Kim's second time to receive an international award. During this year's Berlin International Film Festival, he won the best director award for "Samaria".

The Venice Film Festival 2000 invited Mr. Kim's "The Isle" to compete and in 2001 "Address Unknown" was also invited to compete at the Film Festival.
