Director Kwon Oh Kwang‘s offbeat film “Collective Invention,” starring Lee Kwang Soo, Park Bo Young, and Lee Chun Hee, has been invited to the 40th Toronto International Film Festival as part of the Vanguard section.
The director, Kwon Oh Kwang, has previously won the Short Film Palme d’Or at the prestigious Cannes Festival with the short film “Safe,” which he penned. The movie was the first Korean short film to win the award in that category.
“Collective Invention” will be having its world premiere at TIFF. Another Korean film, “Veteran” directed by Ryu Seung Wan that opened in theaters recently, has also been invited.
The film stars Lee Kwang Soo as a man who turns into a half-fish mutant after an experiment gone wrong. Watch the trailer below.
