Ku Hye Sun′s ′The Peach Tree′ to Screen at the ′New York Asian Film Festival′
Ku Hye Sun′s self-directed film The Peach Tree has been invited to a screening at the 2013 New York Asian Film Festival.
The festival, which meets its 12th running this year, aims to introduce Asian film to American audiences.
The Peach Tree will screen on July 9 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.
The festival said about the film, "THE PEACH TREE is actually a deeply felt, sensitive romance about the price children pay for disappointing their parents and about the debt that siblings owe one another."
Ku Hye Sun not only directed the film, but also wrote its theme song and even published a novelized version of the story. The film previously made it to the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival in April.
The actress has been leading a successful career as a director, as with her debut piece The Madonna, she won awards at the Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia, the Busan Asian Short Film Festival and the Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival.
Her first feature film Magic was screened at the Jeonju International Film Festival and the Tokyo International Film Festival.
The Peach Tree is about siamese twins who fall in love. It stars Cho Seung Woo, Ryu Deok Hwan and Nam Sang Mi.
