A movie starring world star Kang Su-yeon, her first big-screen work in 20 years, will be screened at the Venice Film Festival.
Kang gained global acclaim in 1987 by winning the Best Leading Actress award at the festival for her role in Lim Kwon-taek's movie "The Surrogate Woman."
Her new film is a story about a nine-year-old girl from a mining village in Gangwon Province and her views on her family and the world. Kang plays the girl's mother in the movie.
Directed by Jun Su-il, the movie will compete in the "Horizon" category of the Venice festival.
Lim Kwon-taek's movie "Beyond the Years" will also participate in the festival in the non-competition category.
