    [Press Release] Rogues, Rebels and Romantics: A Season of Irish Cinema

    [Press Release] Busan International Film Festival (2013.09.18)   Rogues, Rebels and Romantics: A Season of Irish Cinema   The 18th Busan International Film Festival (Oct. 3 – Oct. 12) presents an Irish Cinema special, ‘Rogues, Rebels and Romantics: A Season of Irish Cinema’. A total of 11 films by upcoming directors and established directors have been selected. The lineup includes films by John Boorman (a two-time recipient of the Best Director Award at the Cannes International Film Festival with Leo the Last (1970) and The General (1998)) and Jim Sheridan of In the Name of the Father (1993).    Jim Sheridan and Neil Jordan to Attend the Festival Irish Cinema and the Local Sentiment to Visit Busan The size of Irish film industry might be compact but is more international than Korean cinema due to its extensive Hollywood experience; to showcase such culture, it was thought to be most effective to select works by directors with international acclaim and young directors with an international collaboration background. The works by the 3 biggest names in Irish cinema, John Boorman, Neil Jordan and Jim Sheridan will each be represented by 2 films. Additionally, a film with beautiful melodies and scenery, Once (2006) by John Carney, was chosen, as well as John Butler’s new film The Stag (2013) which comically shows the world of men. Lastly, Lance Daly’s Life’s a Breeze (Ireland / Sweden, 2013), Brendan Muldowney’s Love Eternal (Ireland / Japan / Netherlands / Luxembourg, 2013) and Lenny Abrahamson’s Garage (2007) will be screened to introduce active young directors.    Jim Sheridan and Neil Jordan will visit the Busan International Film Festival and participate in the Hand Printing event. Sheridan will also be a part of Master Class.   The idea of the Special Program in Focus on Irish cinema came from Grainne Humphreys of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival and Louise Ryan of the Irish Film Board. The Busan International Film Festival sincerely thanks the Irish Film Board, the Culture Ireland and the Irish Film Institute for their support in helping realize this special program.    Rogues, Rebels and Romantics: A Season of Irish Cinema (listed in chronological order) Ÿ   Leo the Last (1970) l Director: John Boorman John Boorman’s 1970 award winning (Best Director at Cannes) masterpiece features a stunning performance by Marcello Mastroianni playing a bored and exiled monarch living in a run-down London mansion, a dreamer intrigued who becomes gradually involved with his impoverished black neighbors.   Ÿ   The Crying Game (1992) l Director: Neil Jordan Neil Jordan’s landmark film remains one of the key Irish films of the last 20 years. An IRA gunman Fergus (Stephen Rea) forms a bond with British soldier (Forest Whitaker). Following the soldier’s death, Fergus travels to London to fulfill his promise to look after the man’s lover.   Ÿ   In the Name of the Father (1993) l Director: Jim Sheridan Winner of the Berlinale Golden Bear in 1994, Jim Sheridan’s fascinating 1993 feature is based on the autobiography of Gerry Conlon, a Belfast Catholic who spent nearly 15 years in British prisons for a crime he did not commit.   Ÿ   Michael Collins (1996) l Director: Neil Jordan Neil Jordan’s hugely ambitious account of the rise of arguably the central figure in Ireland’s painful, bloody fight for independence. A subject which was always going to be controversial, but told on a historic scale with the personal conflict of the title character played with seductive charisma by lead actor Liam Neeson. Winner of the Golden Lion Award at Venice in 1996.   Ÿ   The General (1998) l Director: John Boorman Boorman won the Best Director at Cannes with this stylish crime film: Brendan Gleeson plays the titular character –based on real-life Dublin gangster Martin Cahill, who terrorized the city in the 1980s by taking on not only the law but also the Catholic Church and the IRA.   Ÿ   In America (2002) l Director: Jim Sheridan The semi-autobiographical In America tells the story of a family of Irish immigrants trying to succeed in New York. Written by Jim Sheridan with his daughters, it is shot in the aftermath of 9/11. The film is a heart-warming story about a family coming to terms with bereavement.   Ÿ   Once (2006) l Director: John Carney With humble beginnings on the streets of Dublin, Once, follows a musician’s (Glen Hansard) encounter with a fellow musician (Markéta Irglová) that allows two characters create a piece of music so true, that only they could have created it together. Falling Slowly went on to win an Oscar in 2007 for Best Original Song.   Ÿ   Garage (2007) l Director: Lenny Abrahamson Director Lenny Abrahamson’s award winning character study of a middle aged, lonely garage attendant played by well-known Irish comedian Pat Shortt. The protagonist, Josie takes a young teenager under his wing until a misunderstanding threatens not only the new friendship but also his relationship with the larger community.   Ÿ   Love Eternal (2013) l Director: Brendan Muldowney Based on the Japanese novel In Love with the Dead, from acclaimed author Kei Oishi. The film centers on an isolated and death-fixated young man who tries to make sense of the world, and his existence, in the only way he knows how… by getting closer to death.   Ÿ   Life’s a Breeze (2013) l Director: Lance Daly A mattress holding the life savings of an aging mother with mistrust for the Irish banking system is mistakenly thrown out by a big hearted family. A look at Ireland in its current day climate heavily focusing on the relationships bound and tied by family.   Ÿ   The Stag (2013) l Director: John Butler A hugely entertaining broad Irish comedy about a stag party which goes spectacularly awry, John Butlers’ debut feature is a sweet natured study of the Irish male.  작성자

    [Press Release] Busan International Film Festival (40)_(2013.09.11)  10 PROJECTS SELECTED for BOOK TO FILM   Pitching Event to Take Place October 8 at BEXCO    The BOOK TO FILM event – a meeting place for publishers wanting to transform printed content into film as well as producers and directors who seek original copyright, will be held for a second time this year. As the range of original content produced into films has broadened, the BOOK TO FILM event has also expanded its base to include novels, comics, webcomics and graphic novels. The total submission of 54 pieces included 32 novels, 18 webcomics, and 4 comics, of which 10 were chosen for the final selection. These 10 selections will be given pitching opportunities at the Asian Film Market during the BIFF period.   Park Bum-sin’s Salt, Kim Ryeo-ryeong’s I Saw You and more – 10 Original Works to Come to Life on the Big Screen  The 10 selected works for this year cover a wide spectrum of genres and fields. Prolific writer Park Bum-sin’s Salt (Publisher: Hankyoreh Publishing Company) paints a portrait of the father figure of our generation. Kim Ryeo-ryeong’s best-seller I Saw You (Publisher: Changbi Publishers) presents an atypical love story through the common form of a love triangle. These pieces are receiving significant attention following the box-office success of film-turned-novels EunGyo (Original author: Park Bum-sin) and Punch (Original author: Kim Ryeo-ryeong). Other novels selected this year include Cho Nam-ju’s When You Listen Carefully (Publisher: Munhakdongne Publishing Group), in which an ugly reality is revealed through a young idiot savant boy who possesses the amazing ability to hear everything, Bae Myung-hoon’s Decoy (Publisher: Bookhouse), which portrays the torment of a killer who’s been in the business for 11 years, and Park Ha-ik’s Sun-Am Girls Detective Club (Publisher: Goldenbough Publishing House), in which high-school girls become detectives, solving a case. Park Jeong-ae’s KANGBIN, A Lady Who Dreamed a New Chosun (Publisher: Book21 Publishing Group) and Kim Byeol-a’s A Flower in a Blaze (Publisher: Hainaim Publishing Co., LTD.) are historical novels; the former traces the life of a woman who played an eminent role in Korean history while the latter illuminates a new perspective on the Sejong era through an adultery case. A Letter from Korea (Publisher: Homilbat) – a collection of frank and touching stories of foreigners from diverse countries living in Korea, by Subedi yagya raj, Shagdarsuren Zagdkhorloo and Nurjanov Elyas, has also been chosen as one of the 10 selected pieces. Introduced for the first time this year is the genre of webcomics. The Dokgo (Publisher: Toyou Entertainment), which deals with the social issue of the ‘outcast’, written by Oh Young-seok and illustrated by Baek Seung-hoon, as well as Kim Gyu-sam’s particularly comical Pegasus Mart (Publisher: NAVER) have been selected. The BOOK TO FILM open pitching event will take place Tuesday, October 8 from 10:30 AM at the BEXCO Exhibition Hall 1, Event Hall.
