Actor Yoo Ji-tae’s Directed Work Invited to Japanese Film Festival

June 5, 2006

Yoo Ji-tae will take part in Japan’s Short Shorts Film Festival Asia not as an actor but as a director.

His second directed work "What Dream Does a Blind Person Have?" has been invited to the special program section of the film festival, which will run June 7 through 11 in Tokyo. The short film won the Fuji Film Award at the 2006 Busan Asia Short Film Festival in late May.

During his four-day, three-night visit from June 9 to 12, Yoo will give interviews to Japanese media companies and hold a special seminar in which he will talk about his thoughts on films.

Other Korean directors’ works, Kim Byung-jeong’s "Please Defend My Earth" and Ahn Sang-hoon’s "Passover," will be screened in the competition section of the film festival.
