The 54-year-old won the Golden Lion Award for his film “Pieta” in 2012. The next year, he was once again invited for his film “Moebius” as part of the non-competition section.
“One on One,” Kim’s 20th film released on May 22 in Korea, tells the story of seven suspects in the rape-murder of a teen girl as they are terrorized by members of a sect known as The Shadows. It stars actor Ma Dong-suk.
The film festival begins in August.
